Blue Mountains finalist for NSW Midwife of the Year

28 Sep 2022


Blue Mountains District ANZAC Memorial Hospital midwife Madeleine Simpson has been announced as a finalist in the category of Midwife of the Year at the upcoming Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards 2022.

The awards are a keenly anticipated annual event that celebrates the outstanding contributions nurses and midwives make every day to patients, their families and communities.

Madeleine is the Midwifery Unit Manager of the Women’s and Children’s Unit at the Hospital. She has led the unit for the last five years and has shown her passion for woman-centred care and empowering her staff.

“What motivates me is the joy I get from working with families and providing high quality health care to women," says Madeleine, who was both surprised and grateful to have been selected as one of just three finalists in the prestigious category.

“To me the nomination is a wonderful recognition of how well our whole unit has worked to build a great women’s and children’s health service here at Blue Mountains hospital."

“My colleagues give me the support, advice and encouragement to keep everything moving and progressing – so it really has been a team effort."

The awards recognise nurses and midwives across eight categories with a total of thirty finalists. Winners will be announced on 18 November 2022.
