THE chief ex­ec­u­tive and another se­nior staff mem­ber from Mid­land pub­lic hos­pi­tal have re­signed over the past two weeks.

St John of God Health Care con­firmed CEO Glen Power’s de­par­ture in a state­ment to the Re­porter, say­ing he re­signed on July 17. No rea­son was given for the res­ig­na­tion.

The de­par­ture came as a sur­prise to the Swan Cham­ber of Com­merce, which had Dr Power on its board.

He was due to host a cham­ber net­work­ing event at the hos­pi­tal, which was switched to another venue.

“He had a lot of re­spect from our mem­bers,” a cham­ber spokesman said.

“In fact, peo­ple were dis­ap­pointed to hear he was leav­ing.”

St John of God WA hospi­tals ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor John Fog­a­rty will be act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive un­til a new CEO is re­cruited.

Mr Fog­a­rty said Dr Power played a key role in the suc­cess­ful com­mis­sion­ing and open­ing of the hos­pi­tal and the out­stand­ing care it had de­liv­ered to the com­mu­nity in its first 18 months.

“I thank Glen for his ded­i­ca­tion and com­mit­ment to the or­gan­i­sa­tion and wish him all the best with his fu­ture en­deav­ours,” he said.

St John of God has con­firmed that Mid­land pub­lic hos­pi­tal’s di­rec­tor of med­i­cal ser­vices Al­lan Pelkowitz re­signed last week.

Mr Pelkowitz, who has taken up a se­nior role at WA Coun­try Health Ser­vice, will re­main at SJG Mid­land Pub­lic and Pri­vate hospi­tals as di­rec­tor of med­i­cal ser­vices un­til mid-Au­gust.
