In early December, Aurrum brought together staff from our facilities in New South Wales and Victoria to celebrate the festive season. Our Christmas parties this year provided a special opportunity for Aurrum to recognise and reward the efforts of members of our ‘Aurrum Family.’

Aurrum Chairman David Di Pilla announced ‘Facility of the Year,’ a title awarded to a facility in each state that displays excellence in clinical practice and other criteria. Leading the way in 2016 was Aurrum Reservoir in Victoria, and Aurrum Erina and Aurrum Wyoming in New South Wales, who received a joint award. The facilities received an engraved trophy and a prize of $1000 to donate to a charitable cause of their choice.

It was also a time to commend long serving staff. Staff who achieved a service milestone this year were presented with a certificate and gift by David Di Pilla and Operations Manager Glenda Walker to recognise their exceptional commitment.
