The Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service (SCHHS) has said it is committed to closing the gap.

It is partnering with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to deliver better health, education and employment outcomes, and eliminate the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

SCHHS Chief Executive Adjunct Professor Naomi Dwyer said the annual Closing the Gap events, held across SCHHS from 15-29 March, were important to demonstrate our enduring commitment and act as a reminder to the whole health service of their responsibilities.

“As the region’s leading provider of health services, and with more than 7000 staff, we have both an opportunity and responsibility to play a role in Queensland’s journey to truly close the gap,” Adj Prof Dwyer said.
