Chief Operating Officer - Acute Services (H19_3227)

Albury Wodonga Health (AWH) was established on 1 July 2009 and is Australia’s only cross border health service. While classified as a Victorian regional health service, it is co-funded under an intergovernmental agreement between the respective Governments of New South Wales and Victoria.

Employing close to 2500 staff with an additional 300 volunteers, the combined team provides a broad range of hospital, primary and community based services from 17 sites to a growing population of 250,000 living in the north east of Victoria and southern parts of New South Wales.

Set in a spectacular natural landscape, with the twin cities of Albury and Wodonga nestled along the Murray River, the district enjoys strong population growth and a vibrant culture, making it a great place to live and work. It is conveniently located between Sydney and Melbourne with a 3 hour drive to Melbourne and 5 hour drive to Sydney or a quick flight from Albury Airport.

In response to the region’s growing population encouragingly AWH has recently received investment from Government that will enable it to further develop its emergency, mental health, maternity and obstetrics services. The organisation also has a compelling strategic plan, setting out its direction and priorities through to 2021.

As Chief Operating Officer you will report to an experienced Chief Executive and have significant responsibility for ensuring AWH provides best-practice healthcare that is high quality, cost-effective and responsive to community need.

  • Managing the delivery of complex care within an acute hospital environment, with an established team of nursing, medical, allied health and operations professionals.
  • Ensuring the workforce is aligned to the strategic direction of the health service and inspiring innovation
  • Clinical and corporate governance and strategic risk management
  • Working effectively with other executive team members, senior staff and clinicians to implement evidence-based policies, procedures and guidelines across all clinical services
