Bouquets of flowers that were repurposed from Subi Blooms floral installations were gifted to nurses, midwives, new mothers and staff at King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH) on Monday.
City representatives delivered the flowers to the KEMH team in the hospital’s car park as a symbol of the City’s appreciation for those working at the frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Jodi Graham, Executive Director for Women and Newborn Health Service at KEMH said, “The flowers donated from the Subi Blooms events instantly lifted the spirits of patients and staff at the hospital. The thoughtfulness of the regifting of these beautiful flowers was commented upon by everyone.”
Flowers were also distributed amongst wards within the hospital, by ward managers and other staff.
“The flowers have lifted the spirits of all the recipients in an ever-changing environment and in times of vulnerability,” said Jourdin Ross, Midwifery Manager & Registered Midwife Rotational Coordinator on behalf of staff on the wards.
Erin Guhl, on behalf of the Women’s Health, Genetics, and Mental Health team said, “Seeing the gorgeous colours as we walk around our office is a lovely boost.”
This year’s Subi Blooms event was the biggest yet, featuring 13 large-scale floral installations curated by prominent Western Australian floral artists.
