Coffs Clinical Network has four hospitals in the region. These hospitals range from the newly constructed large specialist regional hospital at the Coffs Harbour Health Campus, the new Macksville District Hospital south down the coast, the Bellinger River District hospital in the foothills behind the Coffs Coast and up to the rural hospital at Dorrigo on the mountains above the coast. All four rural and regional communities and facilities are readily commutable from each other. Diverse responsibilities and facilities from a specialist hospital to rural communities’ facilities create a diverse Medical Administration practice across these communities for a mid-career or senior specialist.
The DMS will work with wonderful, dedicated, professional healthcare workers living in this beautiful part of Australia. The Director of Medical Services is supported with a Deputy Director of Medical Services, Director of Professional Education and Training, Manager of Medical Administration, Director of Pharmacy and Director of Health Information and Clinical Directors of specialist departments, along with dedicated administrative staff for operational and professional responsibility for hundreds of medical, pharmacy and health information professionals across the district.
The position works in a close and professional executive based at the Coffs Harbour Health Campus. The Campus is adjacent to the Southern Cross University and is home to the UNSW Rural Clinical School which recently graduated students completing their entire medical degree on the Mid North Coast. Specialist training programs are conducted in all four hospitals with links to networks in Sydney. The region is popular being midway between Sydney and Brisbane, each an hour flight from the Coffs Harbour airport. Beaches, mountains and islands attract a culture and opportunities of a popular growing centre for visitors and those leaving expensive, crowded cities.
