2022 Best Care Awards

Thursday 17 November 2022

Western Health’s Best Care Awards recognise individuals and teams providing exceptional care that is person-centred, coordinated, right and safe, and that reflects our values of compassion, accountability, respect, excellence and safety. In this year’s awards ceremony, the greatest contributors to providing ‘Best Care’ were acknowledged for their efforts over the course of the year.

Over the duration of the awards, a high calibre of candidates were recognised for their contribution to providing best care at Western Health.

“These awards are great opportunity to showcase the work of so many individuals at Western Health, who go above and beyond for their patients,” said Julia Harper, Western Health Foundation Director.

“Over such a difficult and intensive year, it was important to take a step back and celebrate the initiatives and projects that have improved and supported the provision of best care to our patients”.

The judging panel reviewed more than 20 applications across six award categories. The award recipients are as follows:

"These awards would not be possible without the support of our corporate partners. Their generous donations enable staff to design, develop and implement projects and initiatives that have a positive impact on our patients and contribute to their experience at Western Health,"

said Julia.

Each of the award winners were provided with a monetary reward valued up to $5000 – courtesy of the Foundation’s corporate partners; BankVic, Hesta and Maxxia. All Award winners will also receive a keepsake trophy to proudly display in their respective areas.
