Thirty-four finalists have been named for the MNCLHD’s annual Quality and Innovation Awards which will be held at Pacific Bay Resort on Thursday 15 June.
MNCLHD Chief Executive Stewart Dowrick said the quality of this year’s finalists was impressive with teams, individuals and volunteers vying for recognition in 14 award categories.
“Congratulations to all the finalists who have been nominated for their commitment to innovation and building partnerships with community, non-government and private sector to foster improvements in patient care,” he said.
“The Awards will showcase the many innovative programs and practices driven by our dedicated health professionals that will ensure that the Mid North Coast Local Health District continues to provide timely and high-quality health services to its communities.”
Southern Cross University is proudly supporting this year’s Awards.
Southern Cross University’s Vice-President (Engagement) Ben Roche also commended the finalists.
“Living and working in regional Australia we have a profound understanding of what our communities need,” Mr Roche said.
“Innovation in regional healthcare is using that knowledge to design services and outcomes that are tailor-made for those needs.
“As a provider of healthcare education in the region it is heartening to see the approach and calibre of the profession our graduates will step into.”
