Key Health Worker Accommodation update

850x450-KHWA-Update-GBN.png As of April 2018 all Key Health Worker Accommodation was replaced with housing and unit rental accommodation of the highest quality. This exciting milestone in the Goulburn Hospital and Health Service Redevelopment offers Key Health Workers a fit-for-purpose home away from home, which will assist in attracting and retaining quality staff in Goulburn.

The project team has since successfully processed over 500 bookings and housed workers within 5kms of the Goulburn Base Hospital, with accommodation standards demonstrating the value the Health Service places on staff. Depending on availability and classification, staff are placed in either a two, three or four bedroom unit or house. All accommodation options are selfcontained with complete kitchen and laundry facilities. Accommodation is fully serviced prior to arrival, with clean linen and towels provided. All long term stay houses are serviced on a weekly basis.

The level of positive feedback from staff has been remarkable, with many commending the updated system as well as the accommodation itself;

“Very impressed with the accommodation and was great given it was so close to the hospital.”

“It is a significant improvement. The process of checking in to the new accommodation was very smooth as the accommodation team was proactive and clear in regards to communication with the staff.”

“The location is perfect, the cleaners are so lovely and they do a great job, and it’s well furnished.”

“Key system worked well, water pressure great and bathroom size was very good.”

Accommodation options are limited to those who work, or are on placement, at the Goulburn Health Service. For more information regarding Key Health Worker Accommodation please contact the project team on 02 4824 1804.
