Providing quality patient care – linking clinical practice with education and research

By investing in education and researching the best processes, treatments and diagnoses, a hospital can deliver better outcomes to patients.

This is why Epworth Geelong and Deakin University are working in partnership  to provide education programs for medical, nursing, allied health and medical imaging students and staff.

Combining Epworth’s renowned high-quality health services with Deakin University’s training and research will not only ensure students and staff have access to the latest knowledge and career development opportunities, it also ensures patients have access to medical professionals who have the best understanding of how to provide their care.

Public patient access to Epworth Geelong

In a formal partnership with Barwon Health University Hospital Geelong, we are working together to provide an extra 7,000 treatments per year for public patients in the region.

Natural daylight flows throughout the hospital. Most of Epworth Geelong’s 11 operating rooms face south, with large external windows allowing natural light to flow into each theatre.
