The team were presented with medals marking their 10 years with the company at a special morning tea.  The celebrations continued that evening with a formal dinner.

Glenn Keys AO, Aspen Medical’s Executive Chairman and Founder, was joined in thanking the team for their service by management colleagues from Aspen Medical’s Defence On-base Health Services (DOHS) team, representatives of Joint Health Command (JHC) and Medibank Health Solutions (MHS).

“Pucka has a special place in the hearts of all those working with Aspen Medical. This was our first contract providing healthcare to the ADF and it allowed us to show what we were capable of.

“Because of the success of our healthcare services at Pucka we were able to grow Aspen Medical with confidence and provide further support to the ADF at home and overseas, and our outstanding team at Pucka helped to make that happen,” said Keys.

Members of the team who received formal recognition included Grahame Ferguson (RN/Nurse Coordinator), Heather Ferguson (RN), Jenny Tennant (RN), Amanda Williams (RN), Annette Brennan (RN), Sharon Ross (EEN), Tony Waite (Physiotherapist) and Dr Mariam Manib (Medical Officer).
