St John of God Murdoch Hospital’s Doctor of the Year was awarded to Director of Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine Dr David Borshoff, for his dedication to the patients at the hospital, his team and the smooth running of his department.

Chief Executive Officer John Fogarty said Dr Borshoff had contributed to a great deal to the hospital since taking on his directorial role in January last year.

“In this short time, his passion for providing the highest standard of care to our patients has become evident in the work he undertakes here,” Mr Fogarty said.

“He is a man with great energy and Murdoch hospital has been the beneficiary of this drive to make things happen with the very best outcomes.”

Dr Borshoff has had a huge impact on improving the operating of the anaesthetic department and his natural leadership qualities have been very successful in empowering and developing staff at the hospital. Those close to him say he makes Murdoch a great place to work.

“Driven, caring, generous of his time and a wonderful leader, we are very lucky to have Dr Borshoff working at our hospital and to have someone who is so committed to making St John of God Murdoch Hospital the very best it can be,” Mr Fogarty said.

Dr Borshoff, who has been accredited at the hospital since 1998, was delighted to receive the award which was given to him at the annual Christmas party held in late November at a marquee by the lake at the hospital.
