SA Pathology Wins International Recognition for COVID-19 Response

16 December 2020

SA Pathology is one of five Australian health services to receive special recognition by the International Hospital Federation’s (IHF) Beyond the Call of Duty for COVID-19 response recognition program.

SA Pathology developed new tests and adapted testing platforms to achieve a world-leading response to the COVID-19 pandemic and we are honoured to be acknowledged for this achievement.

In response to the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic the IHF launched the ‘Beyond the Call of Duty for COVID-19 Response Recognition Programme’ to acknowledge actions and responses of hospitals and health service providers around the world that went ‘beyond the call of duty’. With a mission to support performance improvement, this recognition is provided to hospitals and health service providers which proactively put in place outstanding and innovative organisational responses or actions in facing the COVID-19 pandemic in their region or country.

‘In what has been a challenging year across the globe, SA Pathology has proudly delivered the quality pathology testing that has enabled the South Australian government’s world-class response to the pandemic. Our remit has always been to serve our community and improve the health of all South Australians, and we are honoured to be recognised internationally for this work,’ said Dr Tom Dodd, Clinical Service Director SA Pathology and Mark McNamara, Executive Director SA Pathology, in a joint statement.

The recognised organisations were announced on 15 December 2020. Read the full list here.
