Jack calls time on distinguished career

After close to 50 years of service to Mona Vale Hospital, Dr Jack Delohery has hung up the stethoscope to enjoy his retirement.

Jack started his career in medicine at Mona Vale Hospital as an intern in 1975, and briefly left during his registrar years before returning as a consultant in 1984.

A champion for rehabilitation, Jack was instrumental in the opening of NSW’s first purpose built rehabilitation ward, the Assessment and Rehabilitation Unit, at Mona Vale in 1987.

Mona Vale Hospital General Manger Jennifer McConnell said Jack would forever be a part of the hospital, having helped create the positive culture that exists at the hospital today.

“He is tireless in his service and contribution to the Northern Beaches community.”

Jenny said Jack was widely respected by his colleagues across multiple disciplines.

“He has enormous respect from his colleagues who note his quirky sense of humour, and regard him as one of the world’s gentlemen,” she said.

Happy retirement Jack!
