Honorary Life Governors have been appointed at South Gippsland Hospital from the time the hospital was established until 2007. The award acknowledges a significant contribution by an individual to the hospital – this can be through service and commitment or through financial support.
The Board re-established this award in 2017 to recognise the contribution of individuals in this community to our hospital. As there has been a gap of ten years since the last award we have a recognised a number of recipients this year. In future years there will be one or two recipients each year.
In November 2017 we honoured three members of the Hospital Auxiliary as well as a number of previous Board members and an independent member of one of our Board Committees. Board Chair Sue Pilkington presented each recipient of the Honorary Life Governor Award with an engraved glass award to commemorate their service and contribution to South Gippsland Hospital.
