Governor of Queensland gives special thanks to Hero-Gram

Paul de Jersey, Governor of Queensland

The Health Heroes, the Clinical and Support Staff of West Moreton Health have been working tirelessly around the clock line to keep our community safe and healthy during COVID-19.

Since the launch of Hero-gram, we’ve seen an overwhelming response from our community, that’s YOU!

Recently, we received a very official Hero-gram from His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland showing his respect and gratitude to all Health Heroes and his recognition, and thanks for our initiative.

His Excellency’s Hero-gram (below) reads:

“Thanking and acknowledging remarkable Queenslanders is the most inspiring aspect of being Governor of our state.

“There are a few to whom our contemporary society owes a greater debt of gratitude than our healthcare workforce.

“As I remarked in my 2020 ANZAC Day Address, dedicated to military nurses, our health professionals have all proven throughout COVID-19 to be a special kind of angel – professional to the core, tough, resilient, enterprising, and compassionate.

“There is more to be done, but Queenslanders have been assured by the calm professionalism of the health response to date.

“It is a cohesive State which acknowledges the importance of these contributions as they really do help define who we are as Queenslanders.

“As Governor, I therefore thank the Ipswich Hospital Foundation for enabling us all to express our support by sending a ‘Hero-gram’.

“To all frontline heroes and their magnificent support contingent, thank you on behalf of all Queenslanders – you have Kaye’s and my enduring respect and gratitude.”
