The San's Emergency Care celebrates 20th anniversary 

Happy 20th Birthday Emergency Care!

The San's Emergency Care celebrated its 20th anniversary on Friday May 6th with a release of some red balloons in memory of up to 400,000 patients its team has cared for since opening in 1996.

EC Director Dr Greg McDonald was joined by the team responsible for its establishment including Dr Leon Clark, (Deputy CEO in 1996) Nursing Unit Manager Robyn Stevens and long serving staff including Dr Paul Humphery.

Heading the presentation, Adventist HealthCare Chief Executive Officer Phil Currie who was involved at the time recalled the extensive planning prior to the opening and the passion of the team.

"Dr McDonald looks after his team and looks after his patients - being a driving force in the EC and providing life changing care."

Dr McDonald shared heart-warming anecdotes of some of the lives transformed and saved - reaffirming the power of humanity when it combines to help others.

Other attendees included local ambulance officers, long serving EC team members Bronwyn Chandler, Kevin Churchill, and Lyndal Moller, and local representatives including local State member for Ku-ring-gai Alister Henskens and Mayor of Ku-ring-gai Cheryl Szatow.

San Spiritual Services' Alex Currie delivered the blessing thanking the medical doctors who demonstrated leadership and for staff who provided an atmosphere of compassion, respect and dignity, and for miracles of healing experienced in the Emergency Care Unit.
