Chief executive Adrian Pennington said the annual awards were an important way for WBHHS to thank its employees for the special work they did. “Our Australia Day Award recipients represent the very best of what our staff do each and every day as they contribute to providing outstanding healthcare to patients right across the Wide Bay,” Adrian said. “Our employees are our greatest asset – without them our service is just buildings and expensive pieces of equipment. So it’s important that we recognise their efforts, especially when Our employees are our greatest asset – without them our service is just buildings and expensive pieces of equipment. So it’s important that we recognise their efforts, especially when they go above and beyond expectations to deliver for patients. —Adrian Pennington they go above and beyond expectations to deliver for patients. “Importantly, some of the recipients this year were not WBHHS staff but volunteers who have given our organisation and our patients wonderful support, whether through fundraising or emotional support through the cancer treatment journey. “We wanted to recognise them too, because they contribute their time and money without being asked, and their efforts make a real and tangible difference to our patients.” Board chair Peta Jamieson said it was a privilege to be able to see the extraordinary work being done by staff across theWide Bay. “Healthcare workers are a special group of people to start off with – they carry an enormous responsibility every day of their working lives, and sometimes their work can literallymean the difference between someone living or dying,” Peta said. “Not only is it extraordinary to hear about some of the ways in which our staff have been going the extra mile, but it’s been a pleasure to meet the people who have been doing these special jobs formore than 40 years. “The recipients of our long-service awards have been the backbone of our hospital and health service for decades in their nursing, medical and operational roles, and we can’t thank them enough.” In total, three teams, and three individuals were given awards in Hervey Bay including one long-service award for one staff member for serving 50 years at the hospital, and 2 teams and 4 individuals were awarded in Maryborough, including two long service awards for two staff members at the Maryborough Hospital.
