Caregivers cover a variety of occupations and roles at the hospital including nursing, midwifery, medicine, allied health, engineering, hospitality and corporate services.

The organisation refers to employees as caregivers as every person regardless of their role and whether they are involved in direct hands-on care contributes to the support or wellbeing of patients.

St John of God Midland Public Hospital Chief Executive Officer Michael Hogan said the milestone reflects the growing community demand for the hospital’s services and our focus on providing high quality care and services.

”We have had high demand on our services since opening, which is reflected in our large workforce,” Mr Hogan said.

“We place great focus on being an employer of choice and provide a number of learning opportunities for caregivers.

“We also provide education, training and research at the hospital which included 309 resident medical officers and interns last financial year.

“In addition, clinical placements were undertaken by 115 medical students, 128 nursing students and 76 allied health students.

“We also have 77 volunteers working at the hospital, who play an important role in assisting our patients and visitors.”
