Quarterly Staff Recognition Awards

This morning, Northern Health held the third Quarterly Staff Recognition Awards ceremony.

These awards have been designed to formally recognise outstanding contributions by our employees and celebrate staff excellence in a wide range of areas across our organisation.

Staff who exemplify a strong and positive workplace culture and commitment to our patients are nominated across six categories – Clinical Excellence, Patient Experience, Excellence in Safety, Innovation, Above and Beyond and Rising Star.

Chief Executive, Siva Sivarajah presented the awards to recipients and said, “the executive judging panel had a difficult task in deciding on the winners – because of the high standard of entries.”

“So really, all of you are winners!”

The winners of the third Quarterly Staff Recognition Awards represent different disciplines and centres, from the orthoptists at Broadmeadows Hospital, nurses from Kath Atkinson Wing to Pharmacy:

  1. Clinical Excellence – Orthoptics Team, Broadmeadows Hospital
  2. Patient Experience – Kath Atkinson Wing (KAW) Team, Bundoora Centre
  3. Excellence in Safety – Min Chu, Pharmacy
  4. Innovation – Alison Bannan, Specialist Clinics – Wound Clinic
  5. Above and Beyond – Kathryn Bartho, Finance
  6. Rising Star – Lauren Scott, Allied Health

“It’s great to see so many staff nominate their colleagues for their achievements at Northern Health,” Siva added.

Northern Health would like to thank our sponsors, Maxxia and BankVic, for their support with these awards.

The next Quarterly Staff Recognition Awards will be held in July, so if you know a staff member who deserves a Staff Award, we encourage you to nominate them!
