Blue Ribbon Foundation – Police Memorial Dedication Ceremony

Today, our Chief Executive Felicity Topp joined the Blue Ribbon Foundation to honour the memory of two fallen officers, Detective Senior Sargent Victor Kostiuk and Constable Garth Atkin, who both lost their lives in tragic road incidents.

Commemorative plaques were unveiled and will be permanently displayed in our emergency departments at Frankston and Rosebud hospitals.

Felicity Topp said; “We are delighted to be dedicating our advanced video laryngoscopy facilities at both the Frankston and Rosebud hospitals, as permanent memorials to Detective Senior Sergeant Kostiuk and Constable Atkin.” “These pieces of equipment will greatly enhance our ability to perform critical intubations on people with severe respiratory conditions.”

We are grateful to have the support of the @blue_ribbon_foundation, which has helped us provide world-class healthcare on the Mornington Peninsula. The generosity and support we have received from the Blue Ribbon Foundation throughout the past decade has funded a number of pieces of life-saving equipment for our hospitals, helping us to care for residents of our local community.
