Victoria’s dedicated healthcare workers have been recognised for their passion for helping Victorians at the annual Victorian Public Healthcare Awards.

In its 14th year, the Victorian Public Healthcare Awards shine a spotlight on the commitment, excellence, innovation and passion that makes a real difference to Victorians.

Whether it’s pursuing the next major medical breakthrough or ensuring Victorians get the high-quality care they need no matter where they live, the awards are a celebration of the contribution the workforce makes to the health and wellbeing of our state.

The awards were judged by 81 experts from across the health sector.

Leaders in fields such as children’s health, mental health, public sector aged care, women’s health and Aboriginal health were recognised.

There were also awards for culturally diverse health, clinical research, LGBTI health, supporting healthy populations, workforce wellbeing and safety, and integration of care for patients with chronic and complex conditions.

The awards also honoured excellence in quality and safety. A full list of winners is available at Health.vic.
