Mr Kerry Cranitch retires after 40 years!
Long serving Director and former Chairman of the Board, Mr Kerry Cranitch, has retired after 40 years of service to the Hospital Complex. Such an enduring commitment was recognised recently by fellow Board members who gathered for a meal together and to make a Presentation to Kerry as a mark of their appreciation for his leadership and support for Clifton Hospital Complex and its Board of Directors. Kerry and his wife Maria are wished well for the future.
The Chairman of the Board for the past five years, Mr Rob Imhoff, decided not to accept nomination for the chairmanship again. Rob is sincerely thanked for his commitment to progressing the Hospital Complex, and for his formidable preparation for monthly meetings and all associated activities of the Board to which he has given his time and energy unstintingly. Rob will continue as a Board member.
The new Chairman of the Board of Directors was elected by members of the Board. Mr Mel Binnington has undertaken the role for the next twelve months. He was warmly welcomed to the role by all Board members. His vast experience and wisdom on business matters and organisations will be much appreciated by his fellow Board members. 2013/14 is going to be a big year for Clifton Co-op Hospital firstly with the opening of the Diversional Therapy Centre, hopefully by the end of the year, then the progression to the planning and implementation of a new Medical Centre in 2014.
The two winners of the Above and Beyond Awards for 2013 were announced at the NIMAC conference on the Gold Coast. The award is presented to 2 people who go 'Above and Beyond', to deliver superior service.
In 2009 we presented our first awards as a result of the Director of National Care Solutions, Lyn Turner, noticing that there were many, many, examples and demonstrations of good care and exceptional effort by staff at all levels across the industry.
