Moments of excellence

Posted by CEO Blog on 8 June 2016 |

We have moments of excellence in our organisation every day and that’s due to the people who work here. People who are passionate about what they do and have a real ‘fire in their belly’ for providing the best care they can and making a difference. Meet Eti Televave and Tanya du Plessis, two staff members who strive to be the best in what they do, yet remain humble, thankful and determined to give back to the people and communities that supported them. Eti is a senior physiotherapist who recently graduated from a Pasifika Leadership Programme and Tanya was awarded Pharmaceutical Society of New Zealand (PSNZ) Pharmacist of the year (2015).

After recently celebrating the Midwifery and Nursing Awards it seemed timely to acknowledge these dedicated and skilled men and women who provide quality and compassionate care 24/7, 365 days a year. With nurses and midwives at CM Health numbering over 3000, they are a valued and vital part of our workforce. Over the years, nurses and midwives have been agile and flexible to grow with the needs of the organisation and the people they serve. While their skills, specialties and roles may have changed over time, the community spirit that was forged back in those early days when the hospital first opened in 1947 remains. So what was it like to be a nurse in 1947? Who better to take us on that journey than Esme Green (nee Montgomery) – Middlemore Hospital’s first trainee nurse?
