Why Hornsby Hospital?
You are invited to join our friendly Emergency Department team at Hornsby. The Emergency Department sees over 42,000 presentations per year, 30% of which are paediatric. Hornsby Hospital is a 250 bed facility and is a teaching hospital of the University of Sydney. The hospital has a 12 bed ICU, coronary care ward, general medical, surgical, orthopedic, obstetric & gynecology, paediatric, rehabilitation and mental health inpatient services.
Hornsby Hospital is accredited by ACEM for twelve (12) months of ED training. There are fourteen (14) enthusiastic and friendly FACEM’s working in ED (5.25 FTE), both Staff Specialists and VMOs. Popular non ED rotations like Anaesthetics, ICU, Paediatrics and Geriatric Emergency Medicine (GEM), all ACEM accredited, can be arranged. We hold weekly teaching sessions for both senior and junior staff. Hornsby is a part of the Northern Sydney Emergency Network and trainees have access to a comprehensive primary exam program and fellowship teaching run both locally and within the hospitals in our network.
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. The Parks are extremely popular with day-trippers from all areas of Sydney and provide diverse recreations such as bushwalking, kayaking and boating. Hornsby Hospital is in walking distance from Hornsby train station and a big Westfield Shopping Centre. Sydney CBD and the northern beaches are just 30 – 40 minutes away.
