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.
