CEO message

September 8, 2017


In this Spring edition of Sight+Sound I’d like to share what we have been celebrating at the hospital.

I was proud to lead our delegation to the World Association of Eye Hospitals (WAEH) conference in China. WAEH is an excellent opportunity to share ideas and build networks to further advance eye care. In particular, we had very positive feedback on the ‘Hello my name is’ campaign launched last year.

On 24 July we hosted an event to celebrate the 4000th cochlear implant surgery and, in serendipitous timing, the 1000th child to receive an implant at the Eye and Ear.

Last but not least, we are at our one-year anniversary of opening our temporary second site, Eye and Ear on the Park. I am looking forward to the redevelopment project continuing to build a world-class hospital.

As always I extend my thanks to our donors, supporters and friends for your ongoing support of the Eye and Ear.

Best wishes,

Mark
