New Clinical Services Building name announced

Sydney Adventist Hospital’s new Clinical Services Building has been officially named in honour of a driving force behind the San’s growth, its reputation as a centre of excellence, and the milestone Redevelopment currently underway.

The naming follows an invitation to staff to submit ideas for consideration in the naming discussions.

As a result of that process it has been decided to follow the precedent set elsewhere on the Hospital estate by honouring a key figure in the San’s history.

Already on site there is the HE Clifford Tower, the AK Tulloch Theatre Block, Merrit Kellogg (Bethel) Musuem, and various wards including Burnside, Radley, Butler, Hudson, Gee and Harrison, and other buildings like the Beattie Complex.

The state-of-the-art 12 storey building to be operational from mid to late next year has been named after Adventist HealthCare Group CEO, Dr Leon Clark. It will be known as the LW Clark Tower.

The CSB is being named now in advance of its opening to assist with forward operational/directional and signage planning.

Individual wards in the new building will be named closer to the official opening and following further discussions.

Dr Clark commenced in administration at the San in 1991 as Medical Executive Officer and Deputy Chief Executive Officer before becoming Chief Executive Officer in 2002. In 2012 his role became Group Chief Executive Officer of Adventist HealthCare Limited.

Dr Clark’s achievements and public recognition are varied and include:
• President Australian Private Hospitals Association
• Paul Harris Fellow (Wahroonga Rotary)
• IVF Director of the Year Award
• President Fertility Society of Australia
• Foundation Chairman Australian IVF Directors Group

The building will be completed by mid to late 2014 and will include a new Maternity and Women’s Health Unit, 10 new operating theatres, new wards, other areas, and ultimately, the new Integrated Cancer Centre.

The name will officially be announced during the building’s opening celebrations later next year.

AHCL Staff were invited to help name the building by submitting name suggestions to the Executive committee and the Board for consideration. While a variety of names were suggested and considered, 6 prizes were awarded by random lucky draw to a range of staff who each made diverse suggestions. Congratulations to Maree Munro (FVMC), Jenny Latner (San Physio), Loris Bellman ( Delivery suite) Julianne Green ( Renal Dialysis) Stephen Cook (EC) and Glenda Flew ( HITH), They have been awarded with a $50 gift voucher of their choice. Thanks to all those who entered.
