Ramsay Health Care has been proud to play a leading, active role in Australia’s COVID-19 health response.
Our people have made significant and wide-ranging contributions to combat the pandemic and protect the community.
Together, we’ve navigated unprecedented challenges such as lockdowns and elective surgery suspensions. We’ve pivoted quickly to find new ways of delivering high-quality patient care. And we’ve demonstrated incredible resilience while strengthening our culture of ‘people caring for people’.
Important learnings from Ramsay’s COVID-19 Response Team Leader
In March 2020, the Australian Government made a landmark decision to enlist the support of private hospital operators to ensure the nation’s health care system had capacity to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ramsay established two dedicated COVID-19 response teams with a particular focus on maintaining personal protective equipment, organisational readiness, workforce, and resilience.
Our COVID-19 Response Team Leader and Chief Nurse, Dr Bernadette Eather, was named a frontline hero for her exceptional leadership during the pandemic. In the video below, Dr Eather details our experiences and learnings as we transition from the pandemic to endemic phase of COVID-19.
