Barb Lourey
March 19, 2020

Introducing our WNHS Woman of the Year 2020 - Barbara Lourey. Barbara is the Coordinator of Midwifery at Women and Newborn Health Service, and although she is away on annual leave, she has some wonderful prizes provided by our Sponsors SmartSalary, Paywise and HESTA waiting for her upon her return.

Barbara was nominated by a colleague who said she felt continually impressed and inspired by Barbara’s actions to always create a positive difference to the wellbeing of others.

“Barbara always goes above and beyond her every day duties to make everyone’s experience whether staff or patients a more positive one,” the nomination said.

“She is always actively promoting change, whether big or small to better us and the world.”

Barbara works hard to encourage staff here at KEMH to fundraise for those in need and has established relationships with Share the Dignity, the Cancer Council and most recently she has led our involvement in the Global Green and Healthy Hospitals initiative.

Congratulations Barbara, what a wonderful acknowledgement!

The Wonderful WNHS Women Wall is fast filling up with images of our wondeful women, and staff are encouraged to continue to print out images of women that inspire them here at WNHS.
