    What is PACU?

    I used to be in Perth, but am travelling Europe prior to working in UK.

    Their are two hospitals in Perth.
    Royal Perth Hospital
    Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital

    I prefer Royal Perth.

    The childrens hospital is Princess Margaret Hospital and the maternity hospital is King Edward Memorial Hospital.

    All have websites, you will find via search engine.

    There are a number of private hospitals and suburban community hospitals but they are fairly boring.

    PACU = Recovery then. So, theatre work. Definately SCGH or RPH.

    I hope you have a nice time.

    Hi,
    I didnt stay in Perth in the end , we moved to Sydney where I worked at Manly hospital, which is a nice friendly place. I can not really suggest any where for Perth sorry.

    Good luck

    HI!

    I work in St John of God Hospital in Subiaco. We are the largest private hospital in Perth, having almost as many beds as the major teaching hospitals. The staff in the hospital are lovely. We have 18 main theatres, and as you can imagine, are always looking for qualified staff. The team in the theatres are really nice. There are also minor theatres in the short stay unit, and we will be opening a much larger endoscopy unit in February.

    Hope this helps with your search.

    Regards Regina
