September 26 will see the Business Excellence Awards Essex unfold and Five Lakes Resort in Colchester and celebrate the remarkable business success of companies and individuals across the region.

One award on the night will shine a light on Essex’s inspirational businesswomen.

The ‘Enterprising Women of the Year’ award will celebrate women of all backgrounds who have showcased success in their sector. As well as playing a vital role in their own industry the winner of this award will have created a name for themselves due to their innate business skills.

And, Essex based hospital, Oaks Private Hospital have now been announced as sponsors of this award.

Since 1994 the facility has provided a wide range of procedures and medical services to patients supporting them through serious health conditions as well as cosmetic surgery.

Amy Simpson is the General Manager at Oaks Hospital and explained what appealed to them about this particular category.

“When we heard about the ‘Enterprising Women of the Year’ category we realised it was a perfect fit,” she said.

“As the majority of the Oaks Hospital Team are female, we are excited to celebrate the endeavours of women in the Essex business community.”

The hospital’s role as category sponsor will see them take on the responsibility of deciding on the three shortlisted finalists as well as selecting the eventual winner.

Amy highlighted what they will be looking for when making their decision.

“We are looking for a strong, dynamic, women-led organisation focused not only on creating sustainable levels of profitability but on ensuring that success comes from the recognition and encouragement of the value of the organisation’s people and teams.”   

Located in Colchester the hospital is always supporting the local community and adding to their offering is just one of the ways they are looking to continue this support in the coming year as Amy explained.

“We are currently undergoing a £7.1m expansion – we are adding another laminar-flow operating theatre, a static MRI and are upgrading key areas of the facility such as the Inpatient Ward and the Admissions Unit,” she added.

“This significant investment will allow Oaks Hospital to provide even higher quality patient care to the Colchester and North East Essex community.”

The Business Excellence Awards Essex will take place at Five Lakes Resort on Thursday 26 September and will be hosted by comedian Mark Dolan and renowned television personality Denise van Outen.
