Congrats to winning VHA members
Posted 13 December 2016
The VHA congratulates its members for scooping the pool at last night’s 2016 Victorian Public Healthcare Awards for excellence and innovation.
VHA CEO Tom Symondson, who attended the presentation, said the results confirmed that Victoria’s public health was world-class.
“It did confirm what we know from visiting our member’s services – they are doing stellar, important – and, at times – ground breaking work.
“It’s important to celebrate the achievements and contribution of Victorian healthcare professionals and services.”
The VHA was particularly pleased to see the advent of the Excellence in Aged Care award – which was introduced this year on the back of a VHA recommendation – which was won by Monash Health.
