ED staff

Congratulations to the Eye and Ear Emergency Department who won the ‘Secretary’s Award for Improving Hospital Performance’ at the 2016 Victorian Public Healthcare Awards last December.

These awards celebrate outstanding innovation and excellence in public healthcare. There are a range of different award categories and judging is conducted by an independent team of health professionals and consumers.

Thank you to all of the Emergency Department staff who have worked hard to create efficiencies within the department and more importantly to create a safer, more patient centred and focused emergency department.

The Eye and Ear and the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service were also finalists for the Healthy Ears Outreach Clinic in the ‘Minister for Health’s Award for improving indigenous health – Closing the gap’ category. Congratulations to the team, it is a great achievement to be short listed as there is always a large number of high quality entries from
Health Services across Victoria.
