MEDIBANK BACKS INVICTUS GAMES SYDNEY 2018

Medibank today proudly announced it is one of the first Australian Premier Partners of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018.  The Invictus Games is the international sporting event for wounded, injured and ill servicemen and women and veterans.

The Invictus Games is an initiative of Prince Harry bringing together 500 athletes from 18 countries to compete in 10 adaptive sports in Sydney in October 2018.

The Games use the power of sport to motivate recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding of the sacrifices made by the men and women who serve their country.

Medibank CEO Craig Drummond said the company was proud to support the Invictus Games Sydney 2018.

“We are proud to be a Premier Partner of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018 and hope that the men and women who keep us safe and serve our nation are as inspired by the Games as we are by them,” Mr Drummond said.

“The Games give us an opportunity to demonstrate our support for serving and ex-serving men and women.

“At Medibank our purpose is For Better Health – better health for our customers and better health for all Australians.  Improving the health and wellbeing of our military and veteran communities is a key part of that purpose.

“We don’t just sponsor the Games, our commitment to our military, their physical and mental health, their family, their community and their future, goes far beyond that.

“Medibank’s Garrison Health Services delivers a national, integrated healthcare service to the Australian Defence Force (ADF).  Through our extensive network we provide access to quality healthcare to the 60,000+ permanent and 20,000+ reservist uniformed ADF personnel – from point of injury or illness to recovery.  We also support Soldier On and Mates4Mates and are proud to be a signatory to the Prime Minister’s Veterans’ Employment Program, recognising the unique skills and professional attributes that veterans have to offer,” Mr Drummond said.

“We are delighted to welcome Medibank to our family of partners and Invictus Games Sydney 2018.  Together we will help inspire and drive better health and wellbeing outcomes for our wounded, injured and ill and the broader Australian community,” Invictus Games Sydney 2018 CEO Patrick Kidd said.
