Head for DHB

Taupo & Turangi Weekender - - News -

Chief op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer for Lakes Dis­trict Health Board Nick Sav­ille-Wood will lead Lakes DHB for a fixed pe­riod when re­tir­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive Ron Dun­ham steps down at the end of De­cem­ber. Nick man­ages Ro­torua and Taupo¯ Hos­pi­tals along with com­mu­nity ser­vices. Nick led the re­build of both Ro­torua and Taupo¯ Hos­pi­tals in his previous role as gen­eral man­ager cor­po­rate ser­vices, and as the project di­rec­tor for the hos­pi­tals re­de­vel­op­ment that ended in 2014. Board chair Deryck Shaw says Nick has been sec­onded to the chief ex­ec­u­tive role for up to six months while the DHB un­der­goes re­cruit­ment for a per­ma­nent chief ex­ec­u­tive. The Board noted that Nick was a very ex­pe­ri­enced se­nior health ex­ec­u­tive who had worked at the DHB for more than 20 years. He has stepped in to the top job on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions dur­ing the six and a half years that Ron Dun­ham has been chief ex­ec­u­tive and has taken leave.
