And the 2011 Westpac Auckland South business of the Year Supreme Winner is ..... East Tamaki Healthcare.

It was an exciting and wonderful evening for East Tamaki Healthcare, who also won the Excellence in Innovation and Strategy and Excellence in Service Delivery Awards.
 
Upon receiving the awards, Rakesh Patel paid tribute to his father & our Chairman/ Founder, Dr Kanti Patel, whose fundamental belief that what is good for the patient is good for the business, has continued to guide the organisation to its success.
 
He continued by thanking the judges, particularly last year’s, for their feedback, which was used to help improve the business. He also thanked Westpac, who in 1976 had loaned Dr Kanti the funds to start the business. Last, but not least, he thanked the entire team at East Tamaki Healthcare for all their hard work and dedication to the communities we serve.
 
ETHC celebrated by cheering and dancing the night away. A fun-filled evening was had by all.
