29 Jan Valued MCH community member awarded Australia Day Honour
Monash Health was incredibly pleased to hear that Patrick Tessier was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in the 2020 Australia Day Honours.
Patrick is responsible for raising over $3.4m for the Monash Children’s Cancer Centre over the past 16 years through his Bailey’s Day charity, set up in memory of his son Bailey who sadly passed away from a brain tumour at just two and a half years old in 2004.

We are forever grateful for Patrick’s generous contributions to Monash Health. Please join us in congratulating him on this wonderful and well-deserved achievement.
