  • Staff achievement
Thursday, 25 Nov 2021

Infection Prevention Coordinator JENNY LUKEIS (pictured) has today been awarded our 2021 AEW Matthews Memorial Travelling Scholarship.

Created by our board of directors in 1991 in memory of former long-serving CEO, the late Allan Matthews, this scholarship allows recipients to travel overseas to be exposed to international best-practice models, trends, programs and other initiatives. Generously funded by the AL Lane Foundation, this award is the most prestigious honor a South West Healthcare employee can receive.

Jenny will attend the International Infection Prevention and Control Conference in London next November to learn of new advances and research results in the fields of health and medical engineering in infection prevention and control. She’ll also visit several London hospitals with advanced infection prevention infrastructure focused on ventilation, logistics and systems for patient-centred care related to both admitted and homebased care.

Our 2020-21 Annual General Meeting also recognised three impressive volunteers:

  • Camperdown’s JUDY DONNELLY received the most prestigious recognition SWH can bestow on a person who has given an outstanding contribution to our health service over a prolonged period of time. Judy was awarded life governorship for her 41 years with our Lolly Trolley Auxiliary, including six years as vice president, 16 years as secretary and seven years as treasurer. Throughout this time Judy has provided continual lolly-trolley service to Merindah Lodge, our Camperdown Hospital, and Sunnyside Aged Care.
  • Certificates of Appreciation were awarded to Camperdown’s MARION BOYD for 30 years voluntary service with the Lolly Trolley Auxiliary, and to Warrnambool’s NEVILLE HOGAN for nine years voluntary assistance in helping maintain our Supply Department’s vehicle fleet.
