GLADSTONE Hospital's emergency department will benefit from the recruitment of a new full-time doctor.

Former locum Dr Ray Gadd will reprise his role as Emergency Medicine director in an ongoing position.

Medical Services director Dr Nicki Murdock said the appointment would help achieve her goal in employing a permanent medical workforce at Gladstone Hospital.

"His experience in the Emergency Department will benefit our patients, but will also be wonderful for our junior doctors who will gain from his skills and knowledge," Dr Murdock said.

The indigenous doctor was raised in Dingo in central Queensland, and specialises in rural and remote medicine.
