About Us

The WA Coun­try Health Service’s core busi­ness is the pro­vi­sion of qual­i­ty, acces­si­ble health ser­vices to peo­ple from large region­al cen­tres to those in small remote communities.

Our vision is to be glob­al leader in rur­al and remote healthcare.

Our val­ues of Com­mu­ni­ty, Com­pas­sion, Qual­i­ty, Integri­ty, Equi­ty and Curios­i­ty shape who we are, how we behave, how we inter­act with each oth­er, how we make deci­sions and how we pro­vide care to our patients.

About the REGION

Norse­man is the south­ern gate­way to West­ern Aus­tralia. It marks the end of the epic Eyre High­way that spans 1,675 kilo­me­tres across the Nullar­bor Plain — the largest lime­stone karst land­scape on Earth. The area is extreme­ly pop­u­lar among four wheel dri­ve enthu­si­asts keen to explore the Nullar­bor Plain, untouched tem­per­ate wood­lands, rugged gran­ite out­crops, ancient salt lakes, stun­ning dis­plays of West­ern Aus­tralian wild­flow­ers and prac­tice your swing on the longest golf course on the plan­et — Nullar­bor Links.
