About the Roles

Western Health provides women’s health services across our network including the tertiary level service at Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s (JKWC) at Sunshine Hospital, and a lower acuity service at Bacchus Marsh Hospital.

JKWC is a purpose-built women’s and children’s facility that opened with state-of-the-art facilities in 2019. The service cares for over 6500 mothers annually and we have a comprehensive tertiary team comprising Maternal Fetal Medicine, obstetric medicine, obstetric anaesthesia and a recently opened Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Gynaecology services include general gynaecology as well as gynae-oncology, urogynaecology & minimally invasive surgery.

Bacchus Marsh Hospital joined the Western Health network in 2021. The lower risk maternity service is expected to grow to approximately 1000 births annually whilst the gynaecology service is expanding to support a large number of theatre sessions and extensive ambulatory services.
