Dr Linda Mellors, Executive Director Mercy Public Hospitals Inc received the Emerging Leader Award at last nightï¿½s Catholic Health Australia awards dinner in Melbourne. Working in the Victorian public health system for more than 12 years, Lindaï¿½s experience and leadership have helped Mercy Health build on its legacy of outstanding service to the people of Victoria.
Linda has proven to be a strong leader in the turnaround of some Mercy Health services that were, like so many other healthcare facilities, struggling to stretch scarce funds far enough to meet increasing demand. Since Linda joined Mercy Health in 2009, Mercy Hospital for Women and Werribee Mercy Hospital have both moved from unfavourable budget positions to favourable ones.
ï¿½Linda has shown herself to be a leader in a range of different ways, making her a very worthy recipient of this award,ï¿½ said Mr Martin Laverty, Chief Executive Officer, Catholic Health Australia. ï¿½By meeting Government activity targets, Mercy Hospital for Women was able to strengthen its commitment to providing quality care to the community.ï¿½
Mercy Health congratulates Dr Linda Mellors on this outstanding achievement. |
