March 21, 2016

A quick survey in the lead up to Harmony Day revealed that one ward at Fiona Stanley Hospital boasts staff from 39 different nationalities!

The Acute Medical Unit (AMU) has staff from Albania, Denmark, Iraq, Somalia, Zimbabwe and just about all points in between.

Others, including Endoscopy and Day Medical Procedures, had more than 10 nationalities amongst their teams.

Harmony Day celebrates Australia’s cultural diversity and is about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone.

Fiona Stanley Hospital’s Acute Medical Unit is a reflection of the diversity of its workforce.

“You only have to walk around the hospital to see the huge range of nationalities employed here,” said Fiona Stanley Hospital’s Acting Executive Director, Dr Paul Mark.

“We are proud that people from so many different nations work side by side at our hospital.

“One of the key messages for Harmony Day is that ‘everybody belongs’ and that is certainly the case at Fiona Stanley Hospital,” Dr Mark said.
