Director of Nursing Lorna O'Brien says Phil has been an absolute shining star during his 15 year career at St John of God Richmond Hospital.

"This year Phil has led the admissions team into a new frontier with the introduction of "Sal" a new database for the admissions office," Lorna said.

"He has managed the change and the load of bed management with sound clinical expertise, good humour and an extraordinary amount of stamina.

"His adaption to the database has seen St John of God Richmond Hospital lead the way in bed management systems, so much so that in March, our Richmond site was part of the presentation at the International Conference for digital transformation.

"This adaption and success has the other mental health facilities within the St John of God Group requesting to implement this Salesforce system.

"Thank you Phil for a great year, well done and a great achievement."
