The Critical Care unit at Waikato Hospital is on a considerable growth path to reform the services and expand the number of ICU level beds that are provided by the Critical Care unit.  As a result we are in the market for a minimum of 6 SMOs, 2 Fellows and 22.5 ICU nurses. This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of a team working to revitalise the Waikato Critical Care unit.

The Critical Care Department at Waikato Hospital is the tertiary provider for Intensive Care to the Midland region of New Zealand.  The Waikato ICU is a state of the art, 16-bed facility providing all major tertiary services including a major trauma centre and the second largest cardiac surgical centre in New Zealand. We provide neurosurgical and regional burns care in addition to a busy general and paediatric intensive care catering to the needs of 1500 ICU patients and almost 3000 HDU level patients each year. We operate a retrieval service by both air and road for critical care patients and a large contingency of cardiac patients.   We now prepare to expand the Intensive Care and seek to further develop academic and research interests, in addition to further advance training of Junior and Senior medical staff. In accordance with the level of service provided, the unit is credentialed by the College of Critical Care Medicine at level C24.

Required skills & experience:

  • Hold current registration with the Medical Council of New Zealand in the scope of practice of Intensive Care Medicine, or equivalent, and must be of good standing.
