Barbara Lourey
March 9, 2020

Meet Barbara Lourey. Barbara is the Coordinator of Midwifery at Women and Newborn Health Service, and she is also our 2020 WNHS Woman of the Year. 

Barbara was nominated by a colleague who said she felt continually impressed and inspired by Barbara’s actions to always create a positive difference to the well-being of others. 

“Barbara always goes above and beyond her every day duties to make everyone’s experience whether staff or patients a more positive one,” the nomination said.
“She is always actively promoting change, whether big or small to better us and the world.” 

Barbara works hard to encourage staff here at KEMH to fundraise for those in need and has established relationships with Share the Dignity, the Cancer Council and most recently she has led our involvement in the Global Green and Healthy Hospitals initiative. 

Congratulations Barbara, what a wonderful achievement!
