General Manager Celebrates Three Decades of Ramsay Service

West Mids GM Celebrates 30 Years With Ramsay 1 1West Midlands Hospital staged a surprise lunch for General Manager Gloria Kerrigan to celebrate her 30 years with Ramsay Health Care.

Gloria has spent three decades working for the organisation and has worked at five different Ramsay Hospitals during that time in a variety of roles.

Colleagues at the Halesowen-based hospital showed their support for Gloria and presented her with flowers and gifts in recognition of the milestone achievement.

Gloria started with Ramsay at Springfield Hospital, Essex as a Staff Nurse in 1987 before she became a Ward Sister at the Chelmsford unit.

She then moved to the former Colchester Oaks Hospital which was completely rebuilt and is now The Oaks Hospital, as Ward Manager.

After relocating to the Midlands with her family, she joined Gloucester Clinic, prior to the opening of Winfield Hospital where she became Ward Manager and then Matron.

After the birth of her second child, Gloria stepped down from the Matron role at Winfield to become a Ward night sister and an Infection Control Lead.

She is now in her thirteenth year at West Midlands Hospital which she joined as Matron in 2004 before taking up the General Manager role in 2006.

Gloria, of Malvern, who is originally from Essex, was also General Manager at Rowley Hall Hospital, Stafford in a dual role split with West Midlands Hospital between 2010 and 2014.

Gloria said: “I can’t believe how quickly the time has gone but I’ve got some wonderful memories working in different hospitals.

“The people make Ramsay Health Care the organisation it is and I’ve been very lucky to have worked with such supportive teams at all the hospitals.

“Ramsay is a fantastic company to work for and has always been very supportive to me with the career choices I have made within the company.

“I feel proud to have been part of Ramsay Health Care for the past 30 years and see it grow and develop.”

Ramsay Health Care recognises loyal staff with service awards every five years.

West Midlands Hospital Matron Terri Burkett added: “Gloria is extremely passionate about Ramsay Health Care and about West Midlands Hospital.

“Staff from all departments wanted to join Gloria for a celebratory lunch to mark her 30 years with Ramsay which is a fantastic milestone to reach.”
