New Medical Interns at St George Hospital

Tuesday, 04 February 2020

The House has heard me boast many times about the Government's investment into St George Hospital.

However, even amongst the hundreds of millions of dollars in upgrades, my favourite part of St George remains its people.

That is why, on 23 January, I was delighted to welcome 71 new medical interns to the South Eastern Sydney Local Health District.

All of these interns have worked extremely hard to reach this point in their medical career and deserve to be commended as such.

I was delighted to hear that 45 of the 71 interns have been assigned to St George Hospital, with 24 assigned to Sutherland Hospital and two to Calvary Health Care Sydney.

These interns join a team of immensely dedicated staff who have the greatest care and compassion for their patients.

My office is often inundated with letters commending the standard of care at our local hospital.

I thank Acting General Manager Vicki Weeden, Director of Medical Services Dr Heidi Boss and the whole team at St George for everything they have done.

Good luck to all the medical interns.
