Friendly private hospital a winner
THE movers and shakers of the Bundaberg business community gathered in the Bundaberg Civic Centre last night to see the Friendly Society Private Hospital take the title of Business of the Year in the Bundaberg Radiology Business Excellence Awards 2010.
The hospital also won the Health Services Award section.
More than 250 people attended the gala black tie event to recognise the local businesses that had excelled in delivering services to the community during the past year.
Entertainment for the evening was provided by the Interactive Theatre Company's hilarious Fawlty Towers Show.
Prestigious trophies were also presented to the businesses that had shone in each of the 12 categories.
The winners were chosen after an exhaustive process to decide the best in each category.
After the submissions had been received from each business that had been nominated, an independent judging panel used strict selection standards as it sifted through the entries.
Categories included small business, new business, customer service, retail, manufacturer, innovative industry, professional services, health services, hospitality, tourism, automotive and business of the year.
The judges were selected by the Bundaberg and District Chamber of Commerce from a range of business and industry backgrounds.
