After a long wait, we were finally able to celebrate the grand opening of our new APC Hunter Clinic. The event was initially cancelled during the peak of the Covid-19 outbreak and was later rescheduled for Thursday 31st of March, 2022.
During the event, attendees were taken through a tour of the new clinic, allowing visitors a unique and intimate experience of the newly refurbished building. The gymnasium was abuzz with excitement as attendees exchanged conversations with friends and APC staff while enjoying a beautiful charcuterie board that was laid on a long table that dominated the center of the gymnasium.
APC Hunter Branch Manager, Michael Storey marked the event as a “significant upgrade from the Broadmeadow Facility”, thanking the community and the team for their support of the opening. Paul Nixon, who also manages the Hunter Clinic, gave a warm speech about his experience supporting the amputee community, and how proud he is of his team and the work they do to “make a massive difference in people’s lives”.
APC Managing Director Harvey Blackney also took to the stage to express his gratitude for the support of the new clinic, “I would like to thank the amputee community in Newcastle, Hunter, and surrounding areas for entrusting your care with us, we take it extremely seriously.” Speeches were followed by the cutting of a red ribbon, to officially celebrate the opening of the clinic.
From the entire APC team, we would like to thank everyone who joined us to celebrate on the night. If you couldn’t make the event, follow us on our Instagram & Facebook pages to see some exclusive snippets from the event.
