Come join us on the West Coast!
Working on the West Coast, you’ll understand the impact you make every day. It’s an exciting and rewarding place to work and you will make a valuable contribution to a small community while enjoying the lifestyle of a rugged and remote landscape.

uHealth West com­pris­es of the Dis­trict Hos­pi­tal in the town­ship of Queen­stown and the Com­mu­ni­ty Health Cen­tre in Rose­bery with the sites being around 50km apart.

We’ll make sure you’re ful­ly induct­ed and wel­comed into our team and into our cul­ture. This is a place for the curi­ous and adven­tur­ous. Whether you love moun­tain bike rid­ing, bush walk­ing or explor­ing his­to­ry, the West Coast offers so many amaz­ing expe­ri­ences. You’ll end up help­ing peo­ple in ways you nev­er imag­ined, and then you might see them at the sand dunes on Sat­ur­day after­noon – that is, unless you pre­fer one of those adven­tures where you won’t see anoth­er human all day.

Why Tas­ma­nia?

Tas­ma­nia has a tem­per­ate cli­mate, deeply influ­enced by the South­ern Ocean. It nev­er gets too hot or too cold here, and both plants and wildlife find it a deli­cious place to live. We think you will too.

For a rel­a­tive­ly small place, you will notice dif­fer­ences between West Coast and East Coast Tas­ma­nia, between the North West, the North, and South­ern Tas­ma­nia. What’s excit­ing is you can trav­el between our regions in a sin­gle week­end. If you’d like to extend your adven­ture across your new home, you can jump in an air­plane for short flights to King Island for the most stun­ning round of golf of your life, or to Flinders Island, for a deeply reward­ing cul­tur­al experience.

His­tor­i­cal­ly, the West Coast is our wildest place. Peo­ple from around the world came to work in our mines and in our forests, and to help build our hydro­elec­tric scheme. Today, West Coast Tas­ma­ni­ans are rein­vent­ing their towns and cities and find­ing strength in what makes them different.

The Uncon­for­mi­ty, in Queen­stown, is a per­fect exam­ple. As more and more artists began mov­ing into Queen­stown and neigh­bour­ing com­mu­ni­ties like Zee­han and Stra­han for afford­able real estate and a charis­mat­ic set­ting, a few peo­ple had an auda­cious idea: why not har­ness this new ener­gy with a fes­ti­val of the unusual?
