2021 Nurse of the Year
The Rotary Club of Karrinyup Nurse of the Year Award was created in 1990 to honour outstanding nurses working at the Osborne Park Hospital. This annual perpetual Award recognises a nurse (or midwife) whose daily dedication and care epitomises the highest standard of quality and personal commitment. Osborne Park Hospital has a number of wards catering for surgical, rehabilitation, midwifery and aged care and there are approximately 270 nurses and midwives working at the hospital. Nominations for the Award may be made by nurses, patients, doctors and hospital management staff.
This Award, which is displayed proudly on the wall at Osborne Park Hospital, is highly regarded by the staff and promoted extensively by the Hospital.
The 2021 Winner of the Nurse of the Year Award is Jo Pye. Jo works as a Clinical Nurse Specialist for the Parkinson’s service. This role provides a service in outpatient clinics, home visiting, telephone consultations and inpatient consultations. Jo is described as 'a passionate dedicated nurse, who seeks to make a positive difference to the lives of her patients and their families. She is a role model for her peers and someone who team members look up to. Here communication style, attitude, positive behaviours and leadership style receive complimentary feedback from staff. She has a great rapport with staff, patients, carers and visitors and is respected by staff across all disciplines of the site.'
The RC Karrinyup members offer our sincere congratulations to our 2021 Osborne Park Hospital Nurse of the Year – Jo Pye.
