Last night (April 22, 2021), The Montefiore Hospital won a national award recognising its early response to the COVID crisis while ensuring its cancer patients continued to receive care throughout the pandemic.
At the 15th annual LaingBuisson Awards* – this year held virtually - the hospital achieved the 'Outstanding Response to COVID in Healthcare Award' in the face of tough competition from hospitals and healthcare providers from across the UK.
“We are delighted to win this award which reflects the tremendous hard work and dedication of all the team during this difficult year,” said the hospital's Director of Clinical Services Lynette Awdry. “When we opened our doors in 2012, little did we know we would be supporting our NHS colleagues during a global pandemic eight years later.”
The accolade was given to the hospital because it demonstrated `a strong culture delivering better care, excellent communication, early responses, adapting to and overcoming challenges during the pandemic including the turn-around of a challenging situation in healthcare’.
