Bathurst welcomes new Director of Medical Services

11 November 2022

Western NSW Local Health District would like to welcome Dr Marco Metelo as the new Director of Medical Services at Bathurst Health Service.

Dr Metelo brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the position, having worked in similar roles across NSW, in both rural and metropolitan settings.

Dr Metelo said he is eager to begin his new role and to serve the Bathurst community and surrounds.

“I am entering this role with a commitment to delivering world-class care for every patient at Bathurst Health Service, and I look forward to working with our dedicated staff to achieve that,” Dr Metelo said.

“Right across Australia, we are experiencing a shortage in medical staffing and one of my priorities as the Director of Medical Services will be to drive recruitment to our region to service the growing needs of our community.”

“The NSW Government is investing $200 million in a major redevelopment of Bathurst Hospital as part of the 2022-23 NSW Budget. I am excited to see that significant project progress during my time in this role.”
