Public Health & Hospital

Our Practice


More than 11 million people in Australia will be admitted to hospital each year – 6.6 million in public hospitals and 4.4 million in private hospitals. With over 693 public hospitals and 657 private hospitals in Australia, our nation possesses one of the most advanced and accessible health systems in the world. The health care and social assistance sector is Australia’s largest and fastest growing industry, with one of the most committed and passionate workforces delivering care services when our population needs it most.


Across our public and private health system there are a number of challenges being faced by providers including an ageing population; increasing rate of chronic disease; how to leverage emerging technologies and utilising health data in a secure and efficient way. Underpinning all of this, is a need for robust financial practices and management to ensure the continuation of strong clinical services.


At Orchard we support organisations to navigate the complexities of the sector, by assisting in the attraction and retention of high-calibre talent. We appoint the right people at the right time, in the right place, with the right skills, allowing our clients to implement a contemporary and best-practice approach and enhance patient outcomes.


Our services incorporate single search, interim appointment or holistic workforce volume campaigns. Our processes align with GSE requirements to provide our clients with a competitive, transparent and comprehensive recruitment process.
