‚ÄčMember for Hornsby Matt Kean took some time in his busy schedule to personally welcome some of our new doctors at the start of their career. He chatted to the interns at length about their studies, their experience so far as well as the future of medicine before stopping for photos. Mr Kean was saying our new doctors' drive and commitment would improve the lives of thousands of people. "It's an honour to have these dedicated professionals at Hornsby Hospital to start their long careers," Mr Kean said. As well as working at Hornsby Hospital, all new doctors will rotate through other hospitals within the district including Mona Vale, Manly and the SAN.
