Our People

More than 70 per cent of staff say Barwon Health is truly a great place to work. Here's a snapshot of what our people have to say about working at Barwon Health:

Chloe, Workforce Relations Triage Officer

My role as the Workforce Relations Triage Officer has been a great transition from University, it has enabled me to expand on the theory and knowledge I developed and hit the ground running. As I work within a very people orientated role, no two days are the same and I’m often presented with new and challenging situations that require complex problem solving. Working at Barwon Health has allowed me to learn from many experienced and dedicated employees. The knowledge I have gained is so invaluable and something that I will take with me throughout my career.

Amber, Midwife 


Working at Barwon Health as a midwife has allowed me to care holistically for women and provide continuity of care throughout their pregnancy and postnatally. Within this role I have been able to expand my knowledge and skills in all areas and work with an amazing maternity team who provide excellent care and continuous support to their patients.

Sally, Occupational Therapist

As an Occupational Therapist working as a leave reliever within the hospital I get to work in all specialty areas, I really enjoy the variety that each day brings. Working on the acute wards has given me a great appreciation of the importance of interdisciplinary teamwork and communication and I feel that Barwon Heath places a strong emphasis on this. My role in this acute setting is primarily to assist our patients regain their optimal level of function to achieve their goals and ultimately return home to live an independent lifestyle. 

Stephan, ICU nurse

With my Intensive Care and Critical Care background from overseas, I have been fortunate enough to work at Barwon Health Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for the last 5 years. Geelong is an amazing city to live in and the work environment is very rewarding. Our 24 bed ICU is not only challenging at times but is also a great opportunity to witness amazing patient recoveries.  I love the patient-nurse ratios, the technology available to us, the work flexibility, and the skill level of my colleagues.
