Hall & Prior recognise exceptional staff at 2015 Directors Awards

Hall & Prior Directors Awards 2015

Hall & Prior was proud to acknowledge its outstanding staff at the 2015 Directors’ Award event on December 17. The annual ceremony recognised 37 staff members and four teams at the University Club of Western Australia.

This year we recognised five individuals for outstanding achievement, 22 people and one team for outstanding care and service and four of our Directors of Nursing for outstanding leadership. Four teams of the year were selected, along with two recipients for the Rising Star Award.

Paul Richards from the Australian Aged Care Quality Industry presented Tuohy’s Director of Nursing Jayne Cummings and her staff with their Better Practice Award, after their win was announced in November. Read more about Tuohy’s Better Practice win here.

Since the creation of the Directors’ Awards, Chief Executive Officer Graeme Prior and Executive Director Michael Hall have presented 17 scholarships to staff who have shown an interest in further studies. This year a scholarship to the value of $2,000 was awarded to Annie Sigdel (pictured below), who is a Clinical Nurse Manager at Hamersley.

 Hall & Prior Directors' Awards 2015

Our most prestigious award, the St Lukes Medallion, is reserved for dedicated long-term employees who have made exceptional individual contributions to Hall & Prior and the achievement of our vision, values and philosophy. This year the St Lukes Medallion was presented to Sally Gutman, Director of Nursing at Hamersley.

Early in her nursing career, Sally (pictured below) had extensive experience in rural Western Australia in Geraldton, Kalgoorlie and Carnarvon. Sally was previously the Director of Nursing at Belmont before she moved to Hamersley and she specialises in palliative care and continence management.

 Hall & Prior Directors' Awards 2015

Each year, our homes are reviewed by the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency to ensure they, along with all other residential care services, are compliant with the standards set by the Australian Government. In 2015, five of our Western Australian homes and our Clarence Community service were successful in their accreditation.

To celebrate these milestones, we present each Director of Nursing with a rose to plant in the garden at the home. This year, funds raised from the sale of the roses will go towards Anzac education in schools and war veteran-related projects, to mark the centenary of the Anzac landing in Gallipoli.

Congratulations to Carmel Greenwood-Home of Agmaroy Aged Care Home, Cindy Skinner of Belmont, Sally Gutman of Hamersley, Margaret Tranquille of Leighton, Sharron Magennis of McDougall Park and Deborah Sinclair-Lane and Cheryl Clark from Clarence Community Care.
