Multicultural melting pot at Logan Hospital

3 September 2019

Celebrating Africa was the theme behind this year’s Multicultural Queensland Month at Logan Hospital with all the colour, sounds and tastes of this vast continent on show.

Logan Hospital is located in one of the most culturally diverse areas of Queensland with around 30 per cent of our consumers coming from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) backgrounds.

Logan is also home to the biggest refugee settlement area in the state.

At Logan Hospital we provide around 12,000 interpreter services every year to ensure consumers effectively access our healthcare services and our Hospital Liaison Officers see more than 2000 inpatients annually in their time of need.

We also celebrate our diverse workforce and acknowledge the importance of their unique skills and experiences.

Logan Hospital dietitian Paula MacDermott has been involved in several initiatives to provide care to our CALD population.

A member of Allied Health Patient-Centred Care Champions, Paula has been instrumental in the recent Allied Health Waiting Room project.

Paula also works closely with the hospital’s multicultural support team on a daily basis to provide the best possible care to our CALD consumers. The team award went this year to the Allied Health Person Centred Care Champions.
