About the District
Southern NSW Local Health District covers a large area of the state, from Goulburn and Crookwell to the Victorian border and surrounds the ACT on three sides. It extends from the pristine beaches of the NSW South Coast, the farmlands of the Southern Tablelands, across the picturesque Great Dividing Range and the spectacular Snowy Mountains.
We invest in understanding the growing and changing health needs of our diverse communities. This investment includes transforming the way we work to respond to these changes and ensure we are prepared and proactive. We are passionate about pursuing the provision of the highest quality care and valuing innovation.
We are working to help our communities lead healthy lives and we provide patients and clients with exceptional care and positive experiences.
We are committed to working with community members and health care users. Community consultation committees act as a key medium between the Health District and our communities.
We are a major local employer, so our staff are part of our local communities.
We are home to four large Aboriginal nations – the Gundungurra, Ngunnawal, Ngarigo and Yuin.
