Balmain Hospital is a community-based healthcare facility that has been caring for local people since 1885. We promote a culture of excellence in aged care and rehabilitation nursing. Our staff are committed to the delivery of evidence-based healthcare, and we provide quality services to meet the individual needs of all of our patients.
Our nurses play a very special role in patient recovery, acting as caregivers, teachers, coordinators, motivators and patient advocates. They encourage patients to maintain their independence where possible, but provide them with as much support as they need during their recovery. Nursing staff work in partnership with other health professionals in the Hospital to achieve the best patient outcomes. Specialist nurses are available for consultation and education purposes.
At present, we have a unique mix of highly experienced staff, in addition to new graduate nurses who are being mentored by more senior members of the nursing team.
