Martin's heart beats for nursing

31 May 2024

With a heart for nursing and love of helping others, Martin Matimbire is at home as the NUM of Logan’s Coronary Care Unit.
 
After spending the past 20 years getting to know the ins and outs of Logan Hospital, Martin is now getting used to his new ‘home’ in Building 3.
 
Martin said his wards 5A and 5B were among the first to move into the tower earlier this year, creating a heartbeat of excitement for his team and patients alike.
 
“Our new wards provide a great space for our patients to receive care, and having spaces that better accommodate their needs makes each day a bit easier,” he said.
 
Martin said he had wanted to work in a hospital ever since he was young, and as he pursued his nursing studies, realised how rewarding it was to look after patients and their families.
 
“It means a lot to me to see every patient well cared for and seeing the 5A/5B nursing team provide this care is truly amazing.”
 
Thanks for being an inspiring leader, Martin. It’s clear to see that patient-centred care is at the heart of all you do.
