Peter Armstrong will take over as East Grampians Health Service interim chief executive while the health group’s board explores options to fill the role.

Board chair Nancy Panter confirmed Mr Armstrong’s appointmen­t following the resignatio­n of Andrew Freeman, who is taking up a position as executive director in a Hume Health Service Partnershi­p with Goulburn Valley Health.

Mr Armstrong will start in the position on September 4 and be in charge until the board completes its recruitmen­t campaign.

Mr Armstrong is East Grampians Health Service’s clinical services director and has been with the organisati­on for 12 years.

“I thank the board for its confidence in me to lead the health service in the short term and look forward to working with it and our staff to continue to provide high-quality health services to the community we serve,” he said.

Ms Panter said the board was delighted with the interim appointmen­t.

“The board looks forward to working with Peter while the recruitmen­t takes place for the next chief executive, as well as the opportunit­y to continue the good work of Mr Freeman over the past three years,” she said.

Rebecca Peters will take on the role of clinical

services acting director during the recruitmen­t period.

Ms Peters has been with the organisati­on for three years in the role of clinical governance co-ordinator.
