In this edition of the CEO Update…

CEO David Meates thanks staff for all the work they are doing to support our collective preparations and response to the COVID-19 pandemic. He also acknowledges the six former residents of Rosewood’s psychogeriatric dementia unit who have sadly passed away over the past week, and thanks the staff that cared for them in their final days. David confirms there is a supply of personal protective equipment on the way for DHBs to send to community-based health and disability providers, and also explains the role that the Emergency Coordination Centre is playing in our COVID-19 response. 

This issue also covers a digital health week stall at Burwood Hospital that was well-attended by staff familiarising themselves with the resources available to them; a donation and giveaway of 200kg of Easter chocolate across our hospitals; a donation of 70 safety goggles for hospital staff who may deal with COVID-19 patients, and much more.
