20 YEARS AGO, A DYNAMIC DUO WAS FORMED.

20 YEARS AGO, A DYNAMIC DUO WAS FORMED.

In 2001, we teamed up with Starship children’s hospital to become a Five Star Partner, officially making us sidekicks to the thousands of little superheroes who pass through their doors each year.

Thanks to the generous donations of our wonderful customers, we’ve managed to raise over $13 Million to help the team at Starship continue to provide our nation’s littlest superheroes with the best medical facilities possible!

It’s easy to become a Starship sidekick by adding a small donation to your monthly bill. Every donation, no matter how small, makes a world of difference to the kids at Starship!
 

Meet Victoria.

Meet Victoria.

Wednesday 12 May is International Nurses Day! To spread the love, we're celebrating the wonderful Victoria - a Nurse Educator at Starship.
 
What's your role? 
I have been a nurse at Starship for 14 years, the last five years in the role of Nurse Educator based on Ward24A (Orthopaedics). My role as Nurse Educator keeps me busy, no day is ever the same. I actively provide education, coaching and support to the nursing team in our ward as well as to the wider Starship nursing team. I am passionate about children’s health and I love nursing!
 
What's your favourite thing about being a nurse at Starship?
There are many things I love about being a Nurse in Starship, but in particular I enjoy meeting and working alongside children and their whānau. Each family is unique and has so much to contribute in their own health journey. Children are particularly resilient, they always find time to play and smile no matter what they are going through. It’s inspiring and drives me to work harder for them! 

What's something that would surprise people outside of the nursing profession about your day to day? 
The number of decisions we as nurses make, and just how much we care about our human connections. We often receive feedback from families about how we go the extra mile for their family and are there in times of need.
