A powerhouse of endeavour with a very human face

 

 

It's a place where none of us wants to be.

Every day it fights battles of life and death.
It is one of the town's biggest employers, a $150m a year operation of extreme complexity, drawing its highly skilled staff from all corners of the globe.
Last week I got a first-hand look at the Alice Springs hospital, getting a new left hip (that's me pictured, getting back on my feet a couple of days later).
It was the small things that touched me most: "Hi, I'm Annie, I'll be looking after you for the next few hours. Do you need anything? OK, if you need me, just ring the bell."
To a person, the nursing staff start their shifts in this way. It takes around 30 seconds to say these or similar words, but they make all the difference: I wasn't an object having things done to it. I was a person and I was with people who cared. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.
