MANAGERS, colleagues and friends met at Stages Restaurant on October 25 to bid a fond farewell to long-serving employees of Port Shepstone Regional Hospital, Carol Coetzee and Desiree Du Randt.

Both women have somewhat become part of the hospital and not having them around will take some time for many of the hospital’s staff to accept.

Mrs Coetzee announced her retirement after a staggering 36 years of service.

“Seeing how things have changed and improved in Port Shepstone Hospital up to now gives me so much satisfaction,” said Coetzee.

Over the years she has grown from being a nurse who worked in the wards and outpatient departments, to finally being a monitoring and evaluation manager.

She was thanked by the hospital management for her time and contribution to the outcome- and evidence-based strategic decision-making that promoted a culture of evidence-based learning and adaptation.

The other employee, Ms Desiree Du Rant, felt that after having served the hospital for 30 years, a change was inevitable, so she took a transfer under her current human resource manager post to the Ugu Health District office.

“There have been lots of great moments over the years and I’m delighted and honoured to have worked with my amazing team in the human resource division and the entire management and staff of Port Shepstone Hospital,” said Du Randt.

Both employees were given tokens of appreciation and thanked for their efficiency and contribution towards the growth of the hospital to what it is today. Fellow staff members said they were all going to miss Coetzee and Du Rant, and wished them well in their future plans.
