The Foundation’s ‘Above & Beyond’ program provides an opportunity to honour a staff member or volunteer who goes beyond the call of duty to make a real difference in the lives of their patients or clients.

In recognition of their efforts, they each received an ‘Above and Beyond’ Award. They are:

  • Catherine Collins and Carla Spence, from Payroll, were nominated by Colac Area Health. They successfully implemented the KRONOS System showing great patience and understanding in training staff and managers.
  • Bernice Jenkins, a nurse in Corangamarah. Bernice showed great care to client Patricia Sadler, assisting with her recovery.
  • Gayle Harrington Smith, Environmental Services Manager was nominated by the Colac Area Health Executive. Gayle went above and beyond by taking on additional tasks, working double shifts and filling in where and when necessary due to unforeseen staff shortages.
