The Penrith and Blue Mountains regions boast mountains, rivers, and more.  Penrith is immediately recognised by its natural setting, with the Nepean River and world renowned Blue Mountains. Penrith offers the lifestyle with a wealth of adventure, cultural activities, shopping, entertainment, sporting and leisure facilities.

The Blue Mountains area includes urbanised development and townships as well as isolated settlements and extensive areas of rugged bush land. The Blue Mountains are one of the top tourist destinations in Australia with over 3 million visitors per year, with an abundance of natural beauty and rich cultural resources.

Lithgow is a historical town situated on the western slopes of the Blue Mountains about 2 hours’ drive from Sydney, with an altitude of 900 metres Lithgow residents enjoy warm summer days and occasional snowfalls in Winter.

In the year 2000, the Greater Blue Mountains region was selected for inscription on the World Heritage List for its representation of Australia's unique eucalypt vegetation and globally outstanding biodiversity.

Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District (NBMLHD) consists of both urban and semi-rural areas, covering almost 9,179 square kilometres and is responsible for providing primary and secondary health care for people living in the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury, Lithgow and Penrith local government areas (LGAs), and tertiary care to residents of the Greater Western Region.

Spanning such a vast area, a number of health facilities are located across the LGAs to provide health care services to a wide, multidisciplinary community. NBMLHD encompasses five main hospitals, with a number of community health centres and drug & alcohol/mental health service facilities.

The majority of our facilities are easily accessible and close to public transport. Our employees have a vested interest in services provided and the reputation of the facilities, as a large number of staff employed across NBMLHD live within the community. This proves beneficial as our staff are aware of the impact of their business/services throughout their local communities.
