Eastern Health named the 2014 Premier’s (Metropolitan) Health Service of the year
The 2014 Victorian Public Healthcare Awards were presented at a gala ceremony on 13 October 2014. Awards were presented for outstanding achievement by the State's health sector across a number of categories including patient-centred care, healthcare innovation and health leadership. The Judging Panel took into account the results of the Victorian People Matter Survey in addition to clinical, operational, quality, strategic and financial outcomes.
To be named Premier’s (Metropolitan) Health Service of the Year 2014 is such a fantastic outcome for more than 9500 staff and volunteers across Eastern Health and reflects the continuing high levels of care and service for people and communities in the east.
This is a proud moment in Eastern Health’s history and it is also the first time that a Health Service has received this prestigious award and recognition in two successive years.
