ST JOHN of God Health Care has appointed a director of nursing for the new Midland Health Campus.
Jeffrey Williams has extensive experience in nursing and quality management at St John of God, as well as in the public health service.
Mr Williams said the greatest challenge of his new role would be attracting staff to the hospital, which will have 50 per cent more beds than Swan District Hospital.
His most recent position was as director of quality and risk at St John of God Hospital in Subiaco, where he was responsible for the 555-bed hospital’s quality patient care framework.
He has also had significant input into the initial design and service planning for the Midland hospital.
Mr Williams’ career history has also included working as a project co-ordinator for Royal Perth Hospital and as metropolitan operations manager for St John Ambulance.
He has postgraduate qualifications in health administration from Curtin University and is a member of the Australian College of Health Service Managers, Australian College of Nursing and the Australian Association for Quality in Health Care.
