This is an exciting time for Western Health Critical Care departments as they expand their services to Sunshine Hospital in early 2015. This is an opportunity to work in friendly and supportive teams where your contribution to excellence in patient care is valued and recognised.

The Intensive Care Service at Western Health will open a second ICU at the Sunshine Hospital in early 2015 to work in conjunction with the current ICU located at the Footscray Hospital in the Western suburbs of Melbourne. Both Units are specifically designed and equipped to provide physiological monitoring and life supporting therapies to patients with a critical illness in an open, team-focused environment.

The Footscray Hospital ICU has a very high functioning multi-disciplinary team that provides care to a mix of non-surgical cardiac, general medical and general surgical patients. Western Health has the only Intensive Care Service located in the western suburbs of Melbourne and is currently admitting over 1000 patients each year. The Sunshine Hospital ICU will open with the same philosophy, practice and leadership and will work with the current ICU to expand and further develop the Service.

Western Health Cardiology provide a range of services in the diagnosis, intervention and treatment of acute cardiology patients. The Cardiac Care Unit is an integrated CCU and Cardiology ward and manages all acute coronary syndromes, arrhythmia disorders and provides the cardiac monitoring, cardiac rehabilitation and resuscitation service for the hospital. The Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory provides diagnostic and interventional services, a 24 hour on-call service for AMI which is one of the busiest in Melbourne and an EP service. With the commencement of critical care services at Sunshine Hospital, a state-of-the-art CCU and CCL suite incorporating a day procedure unit will open in early 2015.
