Marion moves into retirement

14 November 2019

Logan Hospital’s midwives have farewelled their beloved colleague Marion Waterhouse who is embarking on a new life in retirement after 52 years as a nurse and midwife.

Marion started work in the Birth Suite in 1997 after beginning her nursing career in 1967 and working in various hospitals along the east coast of Australia.

Acting Midwifery Unit Manager Birth Suite and Maternity Assessment Unit Alexis Luckley said Marion was a highly regarded mentor and midwife who often cared for staff when they came to Logan Hospital to have their own babies.

“Marion was also highly regarded by the medical team and her catch phrase ‘you can do this mamma’ was well known by everyone,” Alexis said.

“She is already missed and has left a void, which we are trying to fill!”

Marion said it was with mixed emotions that she was finishing her career and while she looked forward to relaxing she already knew she would miss her job and her colleagues.

Good luck and congratulations Marion!
