The Sunshine Coast is home to some of the world's most beautiful beach Noosa National Park

Sunshine Coast lifestyle

The Sunshine Coast offers the best of both worlds - a relaxed lifestyle set amongst beautiful beaches and hinterland, as well as the career opportunities presented by a rapidly growing region.

The Sunshine Coast is flanked by beautiful pristine beaches to the east and lush, mountainous hinterland to the west. Located about 100 kilometres from the State capital Brisbane, the Coast offers a fantastic laidback lifestyle with opportunities to advance your career across a variety of sectors including healthcare.

Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service offers numerous career opportunities to health professionals looking for the ultimate work / life balance.

When Sunshine Coast Public University Hospital opens in 2016 it will offer:

  • the ability to work across both public and private health services on one campus
  • teaching and research opportunities in the on-site Skills, Academic and Research Centre
  • the opportunity to gain additional training and specialisation in what will be one of Queensland’s largest public tertiary teaching hospitals.

In the meantime, Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service is growing its clinical expertise and capacity by expanding and offering new services at Nambour General Hospital and Caloundra Health Service in preparation for opening the new public tertiary teaching hospital.
