Message from our CEO

Wexford launch 121Welcome to the Spring edition of Murdoch Messenger.

We are very excited that our new Theatres, Cancer Centre and South Wing are now open and getting busier by the day. Caregivers and patients alike are enjoying these new spaces and we are receiving consistently positive feedback about the facilities and services they offer.

Our redevelopment continues on, with the completion of ICU/CCU, CSSD and kitchen expansions and refurbishment of our North Wing wards, foyer and chapel commencing early next year.

Our Centre for Nursing and Midwifery Research has been making great strides in contributing to the body of health care research that aims to improve patient experience and quality of care. You can read about their recent results and ongoing research in this edition.

At our annual ball at the end of August, our new Charity of the Year, Headwest Brain Injury Association of WA, was announced. We raised $11,000 on the evening and I look forward to seeing how much more we can raise throughout the year for this organisation that does outstanding, and much needed, work in our communities.

This  month marks the opening of our new neighbour, Fiona Stanley Hospital. Its presence will change the current environment of the Murdoch Precinct dramatically and I look forward to the many collaborative opportunities ahead. Our combined presence will enable the delivery of health care to meet the needs of our growing community.

I hope you enjoy reading this edition of Murdoch Messenger.
