Welcome from the General Manager, POWH

Welcome to The Prince of Wales Hospital and Community Health Services, where you will encounter a challenging and worthwhile learning experience that will undoubtedly have a significant influence on your career. We hope you enjoy your time with us.

The Prince of Wales Hospital has developed an excellent reputation for the quality of its clinical services, research work and teaching activities. It's a reputation that has grown as a result of its rich history and its close associations with other distinguished hospitals and centres of excellence over the years.

As one of Sydney’s leading tertiary hospitals, admitting more than 50,000 patients a year, we offer UNSW medical students a broad array of opportunities to develop their medical education in a friendly, supportive environment.

Each day, more than 2,725 people at The Prince of Wales work together to provide compassionate,  best-possible health care. As soon as you begin attending ward rounds, and become involved in other activities within the hospital, you will become a valued member of our clinical team. We also look forward to seeing you at Medical Grand Rounds on Wednesdays at 12:30 pm.

This is an exciting year for The Prince of Wales Hospital. In partnership with Industry and the support of the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation we have commenced a proof of concept trial for eReferral Management System designed to streamline medical triage and referral for outpatients. We continue to work towards the planning and development of the Acute Services Building expected to be completed in 2022 and we can look forward to further developing our services and our unique culture to bring the best possible health care to our community over the next decade and beyond.

I hope you have a great year, both personally and professionally.
