MedHealth today launched its first Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) as part of its National Reconciliation Week 2022 celebrations. The RAP covers MedHealth’s family of healthcare, medical and employment businesses over the years 2022 to 2024.
CEO of MedHealth, Tim Morphy, said the MedHealth RAP was a considered and thoughtful plan, and a logical extension of MedHealth’s overall commitment to inclusion.
“Our vision for reconciliation is a unified Australia where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples thrive through meaningful employment and good health and where all Australians learn from, and celebrate, First People’s cultures and deep knowledge of Country.
“I thank our RAP working group, which has members from across our businesses and geographies, for their work on this plan on behalf of all our people. It’s now up to all of us to bring it to life and ensure we embed the principles of reconciliation in the way we do business, deliver services and welcome the unique contributions of all peoples,” he said.
The MedHealth RAP exists to:
- Recognise the value of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ histories, knowledge and contributions within MedHealth’s business and the wider community
- Make a meaningful contribution to reconciliation, building respect, relationships and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, both within MedHealth and through delivering culturally appropriate services
- Foster a corporate culture that values the health, wellbeing and knowledge of all peoples
Morphy added, “There is positive momentum as our country heads towards implementation of the Uluru Statement from the Heart. True reconciliation has the greatest chance when it’s part of public life and, equally, part of our professional and personal lives. It feels fitting to launch our RAP during National Reconciliation Week in 2022.”
