In early 2016, Dr Matthew Ryan joined the Epworth Geelong team as Director of Emergency at Epworth Geelong. Matt is well-regarded in the Geelong medical community. A local himself, he brings an array of emergency medical experience to Epworth, both as an emergency physician in Geelong at Barwon Health Geelong Hospital and St John of God, as well as Queensland where he spent several years at Nambour. He has also held leadership roles, most recently at Werribee Mercy Hospital where he has been the Deputy Director of Emergency Services for six years. Matt said he was attracted to the role because of the opportunity to be involved in a new emergency department and hospital, which is co-located with Deakin University with a strong focus on education.
