Vale Professor Michael Quinlan AO
4 Oct 2020
Professor Quinlan was a consultant physician with a long association with the Sisters of St John of God and St John of God Health Care.
He was born at St John of God Subiaco Hospital and continued his family’s tradition of studying medicine, commencing in 1968 as a General Physician at St John of God Subiaco Hospital, Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital and Royal Perth Hospital.
Professor Quinlan was a member of St John of God Health Care’s first Governing Board and went on to become Board Chair and the inaugural St John of God Foundation Board Chair. He then served as a St John of God Trustee from 2004 until his retirement in 2011.
Professor Quinlan will long be remembered by Western Australians and by health care professionals. The St John of God Health Care Scholarship that bears his name enables University of Notre Dame medical students to benefit from exceptional learning experiences, and we are honoured by this enduring association.
We pass on our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.
