The finalists for the Bethanie Medallion have been announced for this year’s awards, to be held on Wednesday, 7 August 2013.
Celebrating its 10th year, the Bethanie Medallion is an honorary citation presented in recognition of an individual or organisation having a history of consistently delivering an exceptional standard of service within the aged care sector.
Bethanie Group chief executive, Stephen Becsi, said: “This year is even more important as we celebrate the Bethanie Medallion’s 10th year in recognising the people who give unselfishly to others, serve above and beyond the call of duty, seek to enrich the lives of others, and simply make the lives of elderly citizens easier and more enjoyable.”
