"I worked at an aged care centre before and I did a 12-week St Stephen's program through TAFE earlier in the year and it has paid off," she said.

A total of 47 new positions were created at the new hospital and general manager Deb Boyd said this is another exciting milestone for the new 96-bed hospital.

"It's fantastic to see some new faces joining our team and witnessing their shared commitment to helping patients," she said.
