Welcome to the Fairfield Hospital internet pages. These web pages provide information on our services and helpful information for visitors and patients to our Hospital as well as in introduction to our facility for potential new staff.
Fairfield Hospital is a major metropolitan hospital situated in the South West of Sydney. We are based in one of the most multicultural and diverse communities in Australia and celebrate the great language, religious and cultural diversity of the Fairfield, Smithfield and Cabramatta areas.
Our Hospital is currently undergoing a series of works to improve our services to meet the health care needs of our communities. While our clinical links and networks with Bankstown Hospital, Liverpool Hospital and the Children's Hospital at Westmead have continued to grow and strengthen.
At Fairfield Hospital we strive for excellence in the delivery of patient care and have a focus on ensuring a positive experience. Patients and their carers may be invited to participate in one of our patient experience interviews to help us in understanding how we may improve our services. If you kindly agree to participate in one of our patient interviews, I thank you for your time and assistance.
Fairfield Hospital is a teaching and learning centre. We have a 100 seat lecture theatre in the Whitlam Joint Replacement Centre and a well resourced health services library for use by our staff. As we are a teaching hospital and have students from many different allied health, nursing and medical training programs, you may be asked if health professional students can be present during your treatment, if you are uncomfortable with this, please tell your treating professional. We have students from the University of NSW, University of Western Sydney, University of Sydney and the Australian Catholic University.
All the staff at Fairfield Hospital are committed to patient safety and quality care. We have maintained full accreditation status from the Australian Council of Healthcare Standards (ACHS) for many years.
Fairfield Hospital has a strong focus on performance. All our staff take pride in the achievements of our Hospital and we welcome applicants for positions who share a similar drive for achievement and success.
Finally, Fairfield Hospital is a clean hands hospital and we are committed to preventing hospital infections, therefore we ask all our visitors and staff to please use the hand hygiene gels before entering and leaving the Hospital ward and after patient contact.
