Our team across 43 hospitals, 25 pathology centres and range of independent loving services are already living our purpose.
Last year, we treated about 600,000 patients, delivered more than 12,200 babies, performed more than 360,000 surgical procedures and 6.7 million patient pathology episodes.
And 2019 is shaping to be another big year.
Each month, we will showcase highlights of how we are living our purpose.
National Reconciliation Week 2019
Wurundjeri Elder, Uncle Colin Hunter; local consumer representative, Bob Jenkins; and Indigenous dance group, Culture Evolves, joined Managing Director and Chief Executive Gordon Ballantyne and other members of Healthscope’s executive and dedicated team of staff, nurses and doctors to launch the RAP.
With three key actions, Relationships, Respect and Opportunities, our RAP outlines the specific actions we will take during the next 12 months to further promote cultural awareness, and strengthen partnerships with members of Australian's First Nations.
Volunteers Week 2019
Benefiting the daily operations of so many of our hospitals, our team of amazing volunteers provide valuable and friendly assistance for patients and staff and we are so grateful for their contributions, care and commitment they show to all those who visit.
International Midwives and International Nurses Day 2019
Each and every day, our hardworking and dedicated team of more than 9,400 nurses and over 500 midwives provide exceptional care to our patients.
Last year we treated more than 600,000 patients, performed more than 360,000 surgical procedures and delivered more than 12,200 babieswhich wouldn’t have been possible without our team of more than 500 midwives who provide exceptional patient care each and crucial support to their families each and every day.
Thank you to all of our nurses for everything that you do!
Patient Experience Week 2019
Our teams across our hospitals came together to celebrate the important roles that all of us play in the patient experience, with the 'I am the patient experience' campaign. Have a look at all of the photos in our April media highlights!
A Taste Of Harmony
At Healthscope HQ, we celebrated traditional (and not so traditional) foods of many cultures including Sri Lanka, Peru, Philippines, Greece, Poland, New Zealand, France, Pakistan, India and of course Australia- from ‘Dhal curry’, ‘Papa a la huancaina’, ‘Empanadas’ to ‘Tim Tams’.
There is nothing quite like food cooked with love to bring people together!
