EGHS a finalist in Victorian Public Healthcare Awards

East Grampians Health Service has been selected as a finalist in the 2023 Victorian Public Healthcare Awards.

EGHS has been recognised in the Premier’s Medium Health Service of the Year category.

The awards are a celebration of excellence in public healthcare and acknowledge the achievements of Victoria’s healthcare workers, volunteers, and public health services. EGHS is one of three health services, along with Echuca Regional Health and South West Healthcare, to be shortlisted in this category.

EGHS chief executive Nick Bush said being recognised and nominated for the award for the second year in succession was a great achievement.

“We’re incredibly proud of this achievement, which is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and innovation of our team,” Mr Bush said.

“Our Board, staff, in conjunction with our 150 volunteers and four auxiliaries, work collaboratively and creatively to deliver on our commitment of improving our community’s health and quality of life.”

Mr Bush said EGHS has developed a reputation as a collaborative, innovative and progressive health service, which is a leader in the delivery of safe, high quality, acute, residential and primary care.

“We have achieved several milestones in the past year, including the establishment of a new obstetric model, an innovative medical student training program, and the introduction of a Home Support program,” Mr Bush said.

Winners will be announced at the 17th Victorian Public Healthcare Awards Gala Night on 16 November 2023.
