About us 

MediStays provides a comprehensive, Australia-wide booking service for patients, carers and families seeking accommodation for health and medical travel. While some guests are travelling for medical appointments or specialist care, others have been discharged from hospital and require interim accommodation to support new or lifelong disabilities. Some guests are self-referred and book independently on our platform. Others are referred by hospitals, government, or health organisations. The common thread for guests referred to our service is their gratitude for the positive impact MediStays makes on their medical journey. This is an opportunity to work for a values driven organisation making a positive social impact.
