Recruiting starts for new hospital chief
East Grampians Health Service has started a recruitment process for a new chief executive.
The health group’s management board has engaged recruitment firm Fisher Leadership to help fill the position, vacated by Andrew Freeman.
Chair Nancy Panter said the board was seeking ‘to appoint an exceptional person to the position of chief executive, responsible for leading an effective workforce that delivers appropriate health care within the parameters of government policy, financial responsibility and demographic sensitivity’.
“The chief executive will lead a strong and stable executive team, who each bring to the table a high-quality skillset,” she said.
“We want a chief executive who can build on the current infrastructure, who is passionate about people and education and who wants to make a real commitment to the community.
“EGHS has grown into one of rural Victoria’s most dynamic health services, delivering award-winning clinical programs, educational initiatives and medical training, and from the board through all levels of staff we care about our community and we care for each other.”
Ms Panter said advertising for the position had started and after applications closed a board governance committee would interview candidates and announce the successful person in due course.
During the recruitment process, interim chief executive Peter Armstrong is leading the organisation.
