The Better Foundation and Blacktown Workers Club were proud sponsors of this year’s Blacktown and Mt Druitt Hospital (BMDH) 2022 Quality Awards held on Monday, 25 July.
Blacktown Hospital Acting General Manager Brad Ceely thanked the Better Foundation for their “generosity providing $5000 that will go back to our services to each of the winning teams today” and the worker’s club for providing the afternoon event’s catering.
Brad opened the event by thanking his colleagues and said, “it is important that we take the time to recognise your contributions today as they each are working to provide a better experience for our patients and colleagues”.
“Improving the quality of our patients journey through our hospital is interlinked to improving patient safety, so thank you to everyone of you for being patient centred and driven by this common purpose.
“All of the projects were really strong this year and I think it’s exciting to see so many of the projects focusing on how we can deliver care closer to people’s homes through Rapid Access and outpatient services to avoid the hospital where possible.”
“I think the event was really successful – we had a number of really exceptional entries this year and some really deserving winners,” echoed BMDH Quality Manager Sarah Sullivan.
