Recognition of Service and Masonic Lodge Scholarship Awards at recent AGM

The Board and Executive are pleased to announce that the following staff and volunteers were awarded certificates for years of service to Kerang District Health.

Additionally, four staff received Masonic Lodge Scholarships towards professional development and upskilling in Oncology nursing and Practice Management Leadership development. Trevor Wilkinson and Robert Hampton were present to present the Scholarship certificates.  At this stage, this is the last Masonic Lodge Scholarship funding we will receive. KDH is very grateful for the scholarship support over the years from the Masonic Lodge.

Oscar Aertssen, Board Director and Chair of the Management, Quality and Risk Committee presented the Certificate of Accreditation for Glenarm aged care facility to Emily Miller, Quality and Risk Manager.

Congratulations to all award and scholarship recipients and thank you for your service and commitment to Kerang District Health.

It was also lovely to see our Board of Directors in person and we thank those who had to travel. The Board Directors and Executive have not been face to face together since the beginning of the COVID pandemic.  

The AGM was certainly a celebration of achievements and strong partnerships forged with many local and regional services through many difficult challenges we faced in 2021 and 2022.
