Delivering Integrated Care Award



The 2020 NSLHD Quality and Improvement Awards were held on Tuesday 28 July. While this year looked a little different due to COVID-19, the finalists and staff from the executive team came together to celebrate the excellence of nurses, clinicians, allied health professionals, support staff and researchers across the district. Director of Clinical Governance Mark Zacka hosted the event and announced the finalists and winners. NSLHD Board Chair Trevor Danos AM, along with Board members Karen Filocamo and Professor Mary Chiarella, presented winners and finalists with certificates and trophies. The awards are a special event to celebrate staff who have gone above and beyond to improve their working environment for patients, consumers, staff and the community.
