Thank Your Cleaner Day

Today is Thank Your Cleaner Day, a special day dedicated to all cleaners who keep workplaces and public buildings clean, safe and hygienic.

Northern Health has an amazing team of Patient Service Assistants (PSAs) and ISS cleaners who go above and beyond in keeping our health service spick and span for staff, patients and the community.

Among our team is a lovely mother-daughter duo, Amiben Gor and Radhvi Gor. They both work as PSAs at the Northern Hospital Epping and are both proud to be part of team responsible for protecting our employee’s and patients’ wellbeing every day.

Amiben has worked at Northern Hospital Epping for many years and is grateful for the work environment it offers both her, and her daughter.

“Support Services has a great team, and I thank my managers for creating such a welcoming space. That is exactly why I also recommended this position to my daughter. It’s wonderful to see how everyone has been so inclusive and supportive towards her as well,” she said.

“Thank you Northern Health, for giving my family this opportunity.”

Wendy Nicol, Operations Manager, Support Services at Northern Health, said it was important to not only celebrate, thank and acknowledge our cleaners today, but to do it every day.

“Today, and every day, we would like to acknowledge the amazing work of our PSAs and ISS cleaners who work hard every day to deliver support services to our clinical teams and, most importantly, our patients,” she said.

“Their hard work and dedication help to keep the hospital functioning and clean and our patients happy. We appreciate all they do and thank them for their ongoing commitment.”

Saj Amerasinghe, ISS Key Account Manager, Northern Health, also extended his thank you to his team.

“On Thank Your Cleaner Day, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to the dedicated ISS placemakers who go above and beyond to ensure that Northern health facilities remain clean and aseptic,” he said.

“Your unwavering commitment to the wellbeing of patients, staff, and visitors is truly remarkable. Thank you for shining brightly and tirelessly, day in and day out, throughout the year. Your hard work does not go unnoticed, and we are profoundly thankful for everything you do.”

From all of us here at Northern Health, we extend a heartfelt thanks for our unsung heroes who keep our spaces safe and spotless.
