After an illustrious medical career spanning decades, Professor Tom Reeve AC CBE has received Royal North Shore Hospital’s first ever alumni medal.
The almost 100-year-old was delighted to be awarded the medal, which was presented at the RNSH Medical Alumni 2023 event held at the Kolling auditorium recently.
While Tom couldn’t be at the event to receive his medal, he told the audience of RNSH former and current doctors, via video link, he was delighted to be honoured.
Hosted by the RNSH Medical Staff Council, the event brought close to 100 clinicians together in person, with many more watching online.
RNSH orthopaedic surgeon Dr Stephen Ruff gave a warm and entertaining presentation. Stephen was an orthopaedic surgeon at RNSH for over 30 years, specialising in spinal injuries surgery and established a network of surgeons, which under his leadership, provides orthopaedic and trauma services to Dubbo Base Hospital and essential services to a significant portion of rural NSW.
Organiser Dr Chris Dennis declared the event a wonderful occasion and one that would be repeated.
