What’s in a name? It’s an age-old question, but giving a child an unusual name, or one they dislike, can potentially lead to years of ongoing work for our staff psychiatrists and psychologists.
Now, you have the opportunity to be creative with another naming process – that of four new meals marquees that have recently been installed across Monash Health facilities.
Executive Director, Capital and Infrastructure David Ballantyne said the marquees have been set up to complement existing employee meal rooms and support social distancing.
“Their requirement followed feedback at staff forums and monitoring of existing meal room use via the Q code readers/app,” Mr Ballantyne said. “They are available 24/7 as employee break areas.”
The new meals venues, located at the Casey, Clayton and Dandenong hospitals, are a:
- 20m x 4m marquee (Level 3, A block landing, Clayton);
- 15m x 6m marquee (Level 1, loading dock staff entrance, under the Special Care Nursery building Casey);
- 9m x 6m marquee (ED courtyard, Dandenong); and
- 8m x 4m marquee (ICU courtyard, Dandenong).
You have the chance to have some fun and name one of the structures. It could be something like the ‘Dandy Deli’, or the ‘Casey Cantina’, or your imagination may come up with something far more exotic or entertaining.
The closing date has been extended to submit your entries in the competition. You now have until close of business Thursday 7 November to get your suggestions in to name the marquees.
Entries for the Marquee Naming Competition are to be emailed to Georgina Russell at Georgina.Russell2@monashhealth.org.
A panel of Monash Health executives and the site General Managers will select the winning names.
