Metro North Hospital and Health Service is the biggest and most diverse Hospital and Health Service in Queensland, delivering the best care by the brightest healthcare professionals.

Two of our five hospitals – Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) and The Prince Charles Hospital (TPCH) – are tertiary/quaternary referral hospitals, providing state-wide super specialty services, such as heart and lung transplantation and burns treatment.

Redcliffe and Caboolture are major secondary hospitals, and Kilcoy is a regional community hospital. This is your opportunity to join the dedicated team of professionals at Metro North Health and be part of a world-class, dynamic and growing health service that embraces technology, excellence in health care, teaching, research and empowering our people to be the best in serving our community.

About the Role

  • The Service Director is responsible for the governance, leadership and culture of Women’s and Newborn Services. This requires them to establish and monitor systems which provide feedback about standards of performance to ensure that they are fully informed in relation to key areas of risk and opportunities to achieve best practice performance.
  • Consistent with Women’s and Newborn Services adoption of a corporate organisational structure, the Service Director is responsible for ensuring that services are planned and delivered in a manner which supports coordination of care across the continuum, and which recognises the interdependency of service provision with other Service Lines and stakeholders.
  • As an executive member of the Facility, the Service Director is also required to identify with, and respond to facility-wide issues in a way which constructively recognises the interdependency of Service Lines, and the critical importance of a coherent organisational focus and shared vision.
