Nominations are now open HESTA National Excellence Awards. The awards recognise health professionals in the aged care, allied health, community services, and disability services sectors, that offers a $60,000 prize pool.

HESTA CEO Debby Blakey said, “Our healthcare professionals demonstrate leadership, innovation, and a steadfast commitment to improving healthcare outcomes for all Australians daily. Over the years, we’ve witnessed many remarkable award recipients and I encourage people from around the country to nominate an individual or team for a prestigious HESTA excellence award,” she said.

Until May 12, employers, colleagues, and patients from the four sectors can nominate or be nominated for the Individual Leadership or Team Excellence categories. The two categories will each have four winners, recognising excellence in the respective four health and community service sectors.

The eight winners will each receive $7500, donated by awards sponsor ME, for personal or professional development or further development of processes or services in the workplace.

Finalists will be announced on June 30, 2024, and winners announced at an awards ceremony in Melbourne on August 29, 2024.
