Director of Nursing - Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs (H20_3565)

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 20 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. In 2020, the service undertook a thorough organisational redesign with the overarching objective of improving the patient and carer experience by placing the patient at the centre of everything the service does.

The organisational redesign will enable the service to be equipped for future growth. As part of the organisational redesign several leaderships positions have been created, one of which is the Director of Nursing - Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs. The Director of Nursing Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs will provide leadership in the provision, review and management of coordinated high quality clinical services for the mental health services.

As Director of Nursing Mental Health, Alcohol and Other Drugs you will report to the Executive Director Mental Health and have significant responsibility for providing professional leadership and ensuring AWH mental health services provide contemporary models of care that are high quality, cost-effective and responsive to community needs.
