Celebrating International Women's Day

 
 

Event: 8 March 2016

To celebrate International Women's Day; a day that acknowledges the economic, political and social achievements of women, Mercy Health hosted events at Mercy Hospital for Women, Werribee Mercy Hospital and the Support Services office in Richmond.

Mercy is exceptionally lucky to have such a large number of talented male and female employees who provide the best possible care to our patients, clients and residents every day. To celebrate this, both of our hospitals presented International Women's Day Awards, acknowledging the many achievements of our female employees.
