SSMRF Deputy Chair honoured on retirement

SSMRF Deputy Chair, Emeritus Professor Kate Moore, was recognised today for her 33 years of dedicated and passionate service to St George Hospital.

St George Hospital’s General Manager, Angela Karooz, presented Kate with flowers on her retirement, recognising her incredible achievements.

In 1992, Kate established the Pelvic Floor Unit at St George Hospital, which is now the largest Unit in the southern hemisphere that serves women with urinary and/or faecal incontinence, prolapse and urological dysfunction under one roof. She was recently awarded an AO for her international and national contributions to the field. She has recently retired as a Professor of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

In 2007, as Chair of the Medical Staff Council at St George Hospital, Kate helped stimulate the development of SSMRF, gaining widespread support among senior hospital doctors.

Kate was on the inaugural Board of Directors and has served SSMRF as a director since its formation.

Kate believes the SSMRF’s work in raising funds for research and awarding research grants to promising young and middle-career scientists and clinicians is extremely important to the “lifeblood” of the St George and Sutherland hospitals.

Kate will continue to be an active member of the SSMRF board.
