A traumatic brain injury in July 2017 left 48-year-old Mark unable to move or communicate. After eighteen months of care and support from Alfred Health staff, along with his own strength and determination, Mark is now active and social, and he’s been invited back to hospital to mentor other patients.
Congratulations to Alfred Health’s Chief Executive, Professor Andrew Way, who became a Member (AM) of the Order of Australia (General Division) in this year’s Australia Day honours. Congratulations also to the diverse group of Alfred Health staff members, both past and present, who were honoured in this year's awards.
Alfred Health has a team of more than a dozen nurses whose sole focus is on treating and educating patients who are living with diabetes.
