  • Celebrating our nurses

    On International Nurses Day, we’d like to thank all of our nurses working in the community and in our aged care facilities across both Tasmania and Victoria for their dedication and commitment.

    The day is always celebrated on the birthday of the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale. It’s an opportunity to pause, reflect and celebrate the contribution nurses make across our communities.

What is our BEST philosophy?

  • Believe we can make a difference everyday.
