Message from our CEO

Wexford launch 121Welcome to the Winter edition of Messenger.

Our 20th birthday recently gave us the opportunity to celebrate the outstanding service our maternity ward, St Mary’s, provides our community. We held a high tea for the babies born in the year our hospital opened and their mothers, obstetricians, paediatricians, midwives and nurses. It was wonderful to see memories of our hospital shared and to witness it as being a special place in peoples’ lives.

We were excited to have the excellent work of our caregivers recognised in the last few months. Enrolled Nurses Toni Johnson won the Vocational Student of the Year Award out of 23,000 nominees, across all disciplines and Tanya De La Cruz was nominated as a finalist in the HESTA Nursing awards Outstanding Graduate category.

We are continuing to recruit caregivers to ensure we have the number of caregivers required to meet demand when our new theatres and wards open in August. The response has been overwhelming and we look forward to growing our workforce while maintaining our reputation for excellent and compassionate care.

I am taking the challenge to sleep outside for a night in support of the annual Vinnie’s CEO Sleepout on 19 June. You can sponsor me at http://www.ceosleepout.org.au/ceos/wa-ceos/john-fogarty. I thank you for your help in supporting those who don’t have a warm, safe place to sleep at night.
