Welcome to a world of opportunities

At the Sydney Adventist Hospital, fondly known as the San, taking care of people is our reason for being. It’s what drives us to deliver exceptional outcomes for our patients – and it’s a shared sense of purpose that extends to everyone who works here, too.

When you work for the San, you can expect to feel valued on every level. Whether you’re a healthcare professional, an admin whiz, or part of our maintenance team, we’ll support you to learn, grow and become the best you can be. From world-class facilities and state-of-the-art technology, to training and mentoring across all disciplines, everything you need to succeed is right here.
