Vivienne Bush recognised for three decades of outstanding contribution
We have many unsung heroes across our hospitals, working quietly in the background to keep our services running 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
This week, one of our most dedicated has been honoured.
Concord Hospital’s Director of Corporate and Clinical Support, Vivienne Bush, has been named as the recipient of the prestigious 2018 Pride of Concord medal, awarded annually to a staff member making an outstanding contribution to the hospital.
Vivienne has worked at Concord for more than 29 years and runs a vast portfolio managing porters, cleaners, security staff, engineers, biomedical engineers and suppliers, among others.
“Vivienne works tirelessly to ensure that all the services behind the scenes are running smoothly," acting general manager of Concord Hospital Dr Genevieve Wallace said.
"She supports our clinical services, reviews and assists with the management of the hospital’s risks; ensures we are prepared for any disasters and, most recently, has been working to ensure that none of the clinical services are affected by the redevelopment, which is a much harder task then it sounds. Concord would be lost without Viv.”
In addition to the medal, Vivienne receives a gold lion pin set, $5000 towards professional development, dinner for two and a year’s worth of free coffee.
Congratulations, Vivienne, and well done to all nominees.
