Why Hornsby Hospital?
You are invited to join our friendly Emergency Department team at Hornsby.
Hornsby ED is located in a spacious modern building opened in 2007 with a separate Psychiatry Emergency Unit, dedicated paediatric wing and an Emergency Medical Unit (EMU). The Emergency Department has over 30,000 presentations per year.
Currently Hornsby Hospital is accredited by ACEM for six (6) month of ED training. There are five 5 enthusiastic FACEM working in ED (3 FTE) - Staff Specialists and VMOs. We hold weekly teaching sessions for both seniors and juniors staff. Hornsby is a part of the Northern Sydney Emergency Network and therefore the trainees have access to a comprehensive primary exam tutorials and fellowship teaching at the tertiary hospitals in our network. Popular non ED rotations, like anaesthetics and ICU, can be arranged.
Hornsby Hospital is a teaching hospital of the University of Sydney. Other in-patient services provided include coronary care, general medical, paediatric, surgical, orthopedic, obstetric & gynecology and mental health services.
Hornsby calls itself the 'Bushland Shire'. It is located on a high ridge between two expansive areas of natural bushland: The Ku-ring-gai National Park and the Berowra Valley regional Park. These form a green belt running from Sydney at the south to the Hawkesbury River at the north. The Parks are extremely popular with day-trippers from all areas of Sydney and provide diverse recreations such as bushwalking and boating.
The Hornsby Hospital is in a walking distance from the Hornsby train station and a big Hornsby Westfield Shopping Centre . Sydney CBD or northern beaches are just 30 – 40 minutes away.
