We've got a little emergency - and we need you

The Emergency Department at Sunshine Hospital is one of the largest in the state. The staff who work there see plenty of action and need to be on top of their game as they encounter a wide array of conditions, illnesses and injuries. More than 100,000 patients come through the unit each year, including about 27,000 paediatric patients in the separate part of the unit. 

The major expansion of the unit, completed in early 2021, means we now need several hundred additional staff so we can operationalise the new and state of the art space we have available.

We need to expand to meet the incredibly high need in our community. We need you to help make this possible. 

"People here come from a range of different ethnic, social, and resource backgrounds. So you get to see a lot of different things that you might not see in other sorts of tertiary specialised centres. As a result I've continued to grow, learn and see new things each day."

Dr Jithmi Peris, Registrar, Sunshine Hospital Emergency Department
