South West Healthcare (SWH) is seeking to appoint a Chief Medical Officer / Executive Director of Medical Services (CMO) to join the unified executive leadership team and collaboratively lead the medical and operational departments of the medical directorate.

SWH is Victoria’s largest sub-regional health service and the Barwon South West sub-region’s major specialist referral centre.  SWH provides a comprehensive range of specialist medical, nursing, mental health, allied health and community health services to the 110,000 people who live in the region including: acute care (Warrnambool, Camperdown); aged care (Camperdown); mental health (Warrnambool, Camperdown, Hamilton, Portland); community health (Warrnambool, Camperdown, Macarthur, Lismore); and dental (Warrnambool, Camperdown, Hamilton).

The role is responsible for the Medical and Clinical Governance of the Health Service; Medical Workforce Unit; Senior Medical Staff; external contracted providers of pathology and radiology; pharmacy and health information services.

To be successful in this role the Chief Executive is seeking candidates with a collaborative leadership style, capable of leading and progressing the medical service by building strong relationships and fostering a culture of ‘together we can achieve more’.

This position is based at the Warrnambool campus. Warrnambool Base Hospital is a 212-bed facility that provides acute, rehabilitation and mental health care, and extensive outpatient and community services. The service has strong ties with Deakin University Medical School and is a certified Adult Medicine (Level 1) teaching hospital.

Featuring everything a ‘big city’ has to offer including the arts, fine food, wine, good schools and a healthy vibrant lifestyle without the expensive price tag. Warrnambool is situated along the Great Ocean Road of Victoria and was voted Australia’s most liveable regional city in the IPSOS Life in Australia Survey. The coast, national parks and a cultural city awaits South West Healthcare’s next Chief Medical Officer / Executive Director of Medical Services.

This is a wonderful opportunity for either an established EDMS or aspirational DMS with their sights set on a medical administration career pathway.
