Dedicated nurse manager recognised for a job well done

After more than 35 years working at a Sunshine Coast hospital, a dedicated nurse has been recognised for going above and beyond.  After-hours nurse manager Debra Buchanan has been named the 2023 recipient of the Buderim Private Hospital Elsa Wilson Award. Named after the founder of the hospital, the award is presented annually to recognise a member of staff who upholds the hospital’s key values of working together, respect, justice and compassion, as well as leading
through learning.

“I feel so humbled to be recognised among so many other members of such a wonderful team who come to work to try so hard and give so much every day,” Ms Buchanan says. “It’s very special to receive this award named after the founder of our hospital Elsa Wilson. “If it wasn’t for her, we wouldn’t have a hospital. So, I feel a little emotional and very proud. As I come to the end of my career, I think this award is the icing on the cake and will inspire me even more to come to work each day and consider how I can make things better for everyone.”
