Dedicated member of hospital's executive team retires
Concord Hospital has farewelled a key member of its executive team, with the hospital’s Director of Corporate and Clinical Support Services, Vivienne Bush, retiring after more than 30 years of dedicated service.
Vivienne started her career as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist at Concord in 1989 and was soon appointed Chief Medical Radiation Scientist.
She went on to hold roles as Environmental Risk Manager before becoming the Director of Corporate and Clinical Support Services – a position she has held for more than 12 years.
Vivienne’s dedication to Concord and work ethic made her a worthy recipient of the 2018 Pride of Concord medal, which is awarded annually to a staff member who has made an outstanding contribution to the hospital.
“Concord has been a wonderful place to work throughout my 30 plus years. There is something intangible but special about the place and the people that I will always value,” Vivienne said.
At a Concord staff forum, the hospital’s Acting General Manager, Kiel Harvey acknowledged Vivienne’s contributions, presenting her with a framed Simon Fieldhouse ink and water colour drawing of the hospital.
“The size of Vivienne’s portfolio made her work critical to the day-to-day functioning of the hospital.
“Her tireless commitment to the hospital’s staff, patients and visitors is the reason she is so well respected and valued across the hospital, the community, and the District.” he said.
Grace Scott, who was the District’s Acting Operations Manager Workforce and Corporate Operations, has been appointed to the position.
