You will be sur­round­ed by breath­tak­ing land­scapes, from dra­mat­ic coast­lines to pris­tine Nation­al Parks.

At West Coast Dis­trict Hos­pi­tal, pro­fes­sion­als from var­i­ous health­care back­grounds unite to serve the com­mu­ni­ties of Queen­stown and beyond.

Join us and be part of a place where your work tru­ly mat­ters, and your con­tri­bu­tions make a last­ing difference.
