Ryman Healthcare had a huge night at the Monash Business Awards, winning the health category before being announced as the overall business of the year.
The awards, presented at a gala dinner at the Huntingdale Golf Cub, recognised the best business in the City of Monash across a range of categories.
The top prize was presented to Ryman's community relations team leader Denise Thompson by City of Monash mayor Paul Klisaris.
"I would like to acknowledge our founders Kevin Hickman and John Ryder, two men who founded Ryman Healthcare for the very best of reasons: to lift the overall standards of aged care and to ensure that there would be a retirement option good enough for mum," Denise said.
"This founding principle still guides all our staff and has resulted in a business with a heart that provides an environment and care for older Australians that is second to none."
Monash Business Awards committee chair Rebecca Paterson said: “We selected Ryman Healthcare because of their commitment to the Monash community as an employer
and service deliverer who are positively impacting the elderly and families in Monash.”
