At Nexus Hospitals we acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which our hospitals operate, and their Elders past, present and future. We acknowledge and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of these regions.
We recognise that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have the right to feel confident and safe in accessing the Australian healthcare system. At Nexus, we place this imperative at the forefront of our training, education, and policy development, and acknowledge the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities’ history and culture.
Each of our hospitals is committed to working with their local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to identify their specific cultural requirements and healthcare needs.
Acknowledging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is an important aspect of ending exclusion. Awareness of the importance of different cultures and acceptance of this diversity as a part of modern Australia is central to the Nexus culture. This increased acceptance across all aspects of our society is a critical aspect in helping to create a more united Australia.
