We’re thrilled to announce our Southern Stars Awards winners for 2017!

Held at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Thursday 9 November, 2017, with media star Mark Aiston as MC, it was another fantastic night celebrating the stars of Southern Cross Care.

Our Southern Star Awards recognise and celebrate employees and volunteers who demonstrate our values in action in an outstanding manner.

Employee and volunteer recognition is not just a nice thing to do - recognising and rewarding our aged care professionals, teams and volunteers in caring for older South Australians and Northern Territorians is an important step in keeping our industry alive and valuing and appreciating the hard work and commitment of the people who serve within.
