Royal Perth Hospital Outstanding Service Awards

November 23, 2015

The 2015 Royal Perth Hospital Outstanding Service Awards Dinner was held on Friday 20 November, with six deserving staff members celebrated for their outstanding service to the hospital.

The annual event, held in Victoria’s Café, honours staff who consistently perform a service over and above expectations.

A/Executive Director Aresh Anwar said the awards recognise those people that contribute to making our health service exceptional.

 “What many Outstanding Service Award winners have in common is their ability to rise to whatever challenges they face and continually improve the service they deliver- this year’s winners are no different,” Dr Anwar said.

“In whatever role they play they strive to innovate and enhance, and in leading by example they encourage those around them to do the same.”

The 2015 Outstanding Service Award recipients are:

• Mr Colin Hunter, Manager of General Services
• Dr James Anderson, Consultant Radiologist
• Dr Michel Wren, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
• Mr Ralph Baker, Manager of Medical Illustration and Telehealth
• Ms Helen Parry, Chief Medical Imaging Technologist
• Mr Ted Dowling, Cardiac Rehabilitation Clinical Nurse Specialist.

This year also saw the introduction of a new award honouring the service of one of the Friends of Royal Perth Hospital.  From next year the Phyl Ware Award will be presented to a staff member who has made a significant contribution to their community through volunteer work.

“The Award is a tribute to the contributions Phyl has made to the hospital and the wider West Australian community over the last 53 years,” Dr Anwar said.

“Phyl is retiring from her position as Chairperson of the Friends Leaders Council this year and tonight we would like to thank her for her tireless dedication to this hospital.”

Dr Anwar also thanked the hospital’s Catering team for their hard work in the lead up and on the night.

“Your efforts in transforming the dining room and serving this wonderful meal have made tonight unforgettable, thank you.”
