Healthcare staff across Peter Mac are stepping out in colourful new scrubs thanks to the “Scrub ‘Em Up with Love” initiative.

Peter Mac was donated 200 sets of scrubs via the initiative, run by Australian-owned retail fashion company, Factory X, which owns popular clothing brand Gorman. During the October campaign, thousands of scrubs were gifted to Australian front-line workers across Australia.

“Our staff love their new scrubs!” says Anya Traill, Head of Occupational Therapy and Physiotherapy at Peter Mac.

“It was fun to feel like Santa handing these out to staff who were very excited to receive them – and our patients have remarked it has brightened up their day.”

“Thanks to everyone who supported this initiative which is bringing some joy, positivity and colour to our hospital in what’s been a tough year for everyone.”

The public (and our patients) nominated which healthcare sites they wanted to receive the scrubs. See the full list of sites to receive them here.
