This award celebrates and honours Colac Area Health staff for ‘going the extra mile’.
Congratulations to both Bernadette Walters and Michelle Carmody who were recently nominated for an Above and Beyond Award from Colac Area Health Foundation.
Bernadette was nominated by 95 year old Mr Harry Whitton, who said Bernie demonstrated exceptional care for him during his hospital stay. Bernie was also nominated by Joanna Douma, providing encouragement and support when she was so very ill.
Michelle Carmody, cancer treatment nurse in the Frank Minchinton Centre, was nominated by Joanna also, for showing empathy, helping her through a difficult time.
There are many staff members of Colac Area Health who go beyond the call of duty and their good deeds are not made public.
If you know of a colleague/staff member who has gone ‘Above and Beyond’, please contact Maree Coates from Colac Area Health Foundation on 5232 5288.
