CDHB Earthquake Memories website launched

February 22, 2103

MEDIA RELEASE

CDHB Earthquake Memories website launched

The Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) has today launched a new website to record and acknowledge people in the Canterbury health system’s response in the immediate aftermath of the February 22, 2011 earthquake.

Titled Earthquake Memories, the website features stories and images relating to the health system response.

The website can be found at www.cdhbquake.org.nz.

David Meates, CDHB Chief Executive Officer, has asked staff to observe a minute’s silence at 12.51pm to think about the people the health system cared for, remember those who died and spare a thought for those who continue to face daily challenges two years on.

Mr Meates says staff did a remarkable job in the immediate aftermath of February 22, 2011 and have continued to do so in maintaining a high level of service across the Canterbury health system.

“I would like to ask staff to please take time today to feel proud of how effectively the Canterbury health system was able to respond while the world watched, and of the real difference we made to the people we cared for on that day and on many days since,” Mr Meates says.

“My thanks once again for your resilience, your skill and your dedication that puts the people we care for first, each and every day.”
