The region’s new health body has named the bulk of its top staff roster, and so far no one from Macquarie Area Health Service has made the cut.
Five of the new Greater Western Area Health Service’s six directors have been recruited from the former Far West and Mid-Western health bodies.
The new executive health team will replace three lots of top brass from the former Macquarie, Far West and Mid-Western Area health services.
MAHS’ last chance of filling an executive position lies with the workplace development director’s role, which is due to be filled early next year.
GWAHS chief executive Dr Claire Blizard confirmed the make-up of her new team last week, after interviews were held earlier in the month.
GWAHS’ clinical operations director will be Linda Cutler, the former CEO of the Far West AHS, with 25 years’ experience in the health sector.
Also from Far West is GWAHS’ new nursing and midwifery director Michelle Pitt, who has a 30-year background in nursing and midwifery.
John White will be GWAHS’ corporate services director – he is formerly of the Mid-Western AHS and has 20 years’ experience in the health sector.
GWAHS’ clinical governance director will be Sue-Anne Redmond, formerly the acting general manager of the Bathurst and Orange health services.
Also from Mid-Western AHS, Trish Strachan rounds out the new executive team as GWAHS’ new population health and planning director.
Dr Blizard said the team’s shared skills and knowledge would “provide a strong foundation for the new Greater Western Area Health Service”.
