Metro South Health is committed to recognising staff who demonstrate outstanding performance in healthcare for the benefit of our patients and community.
We believe that a strong reward and recognition program is vital in attracting and retaining quality staff and improving our workforce culture.
In 2015, we established the annual Board Chair Awards to recognise and celebrate the achievements, outstanding performance and significant contributions to healthcare by our staff and volunteers. The awards are the highest honour within Metro South Hospital and Health Service.
We acknowledge the importance of healthcare research in achieving our vision of leading the health sector through high quality, connected, person-centred care.
Each year, we continue increasing allocations to research through the annual Research Support Scheme grants program, funding research-related infrastructure and projects, resulting in significant and far-reaching benefits for our consumers, our community, and for Metro South Health as an organisation.
This year, the 2019 Board Chair Awards will be announced alongside the 2020 Research Support Scheme Grants and PA Research Foundation Research Awards at a special event, the inaugural Metro South Health Reward, Recognition and Research Excellence Awards (RRREA).
The Metro South Health Board Chair Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements, outstanding performance and significant contributions to healthcare by our staff.
In line with Metro South Health’s values, vision and purpose, the Award categories are:
