A VISIONARY WOMAN GETS RECOGNITION FOR LEADING CHANGE AND IMPROVEMENT IN HEALTHCARE DELIVERY

On behalf of everyone at Geneva Healthcare, we would like to congratulate CEO and founder, Josephine Wallis on being named a finalist in the Westpac Women of Influence Awards for 2015.

As a third generation nurse, caring has always been in Josephine’s blood. Her desire to care for the community, and better as many lives as she can, stems from her mother and grandmother both being nurses. Through her tenacity, forward thinking, innovation and cleverly selected collaborations, Jo Wallis managed to get Geneva Healthcare off the ground, taking it from being a modest healthcare recruiting firm in 1996, to one of the leading home and community healthcare providers, employing around 3,000 employees throughout New Zealand and providing them with free NZQA qualifications. She managed all of this whilst also being a very committed single mum of two. After many years of determination, hard work, and leading change and improvement in healthcare delivery, she is being recognised for her efforts and being celebrated by the Women of Influence Awards.

The Business and Enterprise Award has gone to many influential women in the past, and we are honoured that Jo has been selected as a finalist. Being part of this select group is truly a blessing and an immense achievement. The winners will be announced on the 4th November, and we wish her all the best. Good luck, Jo!
