Our award winning work

30 April 2021

SA Pathology is proud to have been recognised for our world-leading work during the COVID-19 pandemic in the recent Premier's Excellence Awards and the SA Health Awards. 

The Premier’s Excellence Awards recognise public sector individuals and teams who have delivered exceptional outcomes for South Australia, through exemplary services and consistently demonstrating the Public Sector Values. A new category – Excellence in Service Delivery: Emergency Response – was added to the Awards’ program to highlight the public sector’s efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic and the devastating bushfires of 2019-20.

Winners were announced at an event held at the Adelaide Convention Centre on 6 April, with SA Pathology winning both the Excellence in Service Delivery – Emergency Response Individual and Team categories.

Winners were announced on 12 February 2021, with SA Pathology winning both the Premier’s Award for Excellence in Health and the Minister’s Research and Innovation Award categories.
