St John of God Burwood Hospital Singing ProjectFri Oct 9 2015
St John of God Burwood Hospital (Burwood Hospital) Management Committee would like to engage a suitably qualified Musician/Music Therapist to pilot a Singing Project in the Mother and Baby Unit for a 12 week period. This pilot, being developed in conjunction with Musica Viva Australia, will be evaluated to determine ongoing steps to continue with the project.
Burwood Hospital has completed an extensive redevelopment project that includes a new front entrance and reception area upgrade, a new chapel which offers a space for patient reflection, refurbishment of all hospital rooms and upgrades in inpatient therapy group rooms. A stand-alone new 12-bed Mother & Baby Unit was also designed and built to provide mothers with mental illness and their babies, care and support through what can be challenging and difficult times.
