HILLCREST Aids Centre Trust’s (Hact) much loved respite unit nursing sister, Nokuphila Khanyile, was announced the organisation’s Employee of the Year for 2016.

Khanyile’s love and dedication for her work knows no bounds and she is regarded as an angel by patients, staff and visitors.

“From the care and compassion that Khanyile affords all our patients to her calm and professional approach to her duties, she was an obvious choice for our 2016 Employee of the Year award.

“The dedication that Khanyile has showed to her nursing studies and to uplifting herself over the past two years has been an inspiration to us all,” said Hact CEO, Olivia Myeza, at the awards ceremony.

Earlier in the year the 47-year-old, single mother of three qualified as an Enrolled Nurse following two years of intensive study at Chatsmed Candlelight Nursing School. Khanyile’s exceptional patient care and nursing skills were also recognised in October 2016 at her graduation ceremony where she was awarded not one, but two trophies for her outstanding performance over the past year - one for the distinction she received for her practical work and the second for being the most compassionate nurse in her class.

Khanyile, was selected for Hact’s 2016 Employee of the Year award by the organisation’s senior management team. In total 10 staff members were nominated for the award, with Sthombe from the Hact prevention programme and Dudu from the Hact counselling department being named our 2016 runners-up.
