Harden-Murrumburrah Multipurpose Service Artwork Project Wins Award
The Murrumbidgee Local Health District (MLHD) Chief Executive’s Choice Award went to Harden-Murrumburrah Multipurpose Service (MPS) Pilot Project on Friday night.
The MPS Artwork Project, being piloted at three sites - Harden-Murrumburrah, Tumbarumba and Culcairn - is an innovative program providing aged care residents with access to professional and quality arts engagement experiences.
MLHD’s Acting Chief Executive, Carla Bailey said the project had touched the hearts and minds of staff, patients, residents and the broader community and had the potential to truly integrate health beyond the walls of our hospitals and aged care residences; to truly impact everyone in the community.
A total of 150 staff and guests from MLHD applauded award winners in the 12 categories of the 2022 MLHD Excellence Awards, culminating in the presentation of the Chief Executive’s Choice Award and the Board Chair’s Choice Award.
Associate Professor John Preddy was awarded for Excellence and Leadership in Research, and the Wagga Wagga Local Health Advisory Committee (LHAC) took out the Volunteer of the Year Award.
Ms Bailey said volunteers made a significant contribution across the District.
“We look upon our volunteers as an extension to our staffing family,” she said.
“Our volunteers offer their time and effort year round in service to others.”
“Volunteer of the Year Award was presented to the Wagga Wagga LHAC in recognition of their great work in bringing a very important issue to the fore and addressing it in a most practical way.”
MLHD Board Chair, Dr Tom Douch said the awards acknowledged and celebrated special award winners who represented the 3,800 staff from across the district who worked hard every day to make a difference to the lives of people in our region.
“These exceptional people have created and continue to uphold the values of excellence, innovation and collaboration which help improve the lives of people in our care,” Dr Douch said.
