The Catholic Health Australia Stewardship Board has reached a unanimous decision to appoint a former medico-legal lawyer and Catholic hospital and aged care executive as the new Catholic Health Australia chief executive officer, following an extensive executive search process.
Suzanne Greenwood, the current national chief executive officer of the Institute of Arbitrators & Mediators Australia, will commence as the Catholic Health Australia CEO in October. Currently based in Queensland, Mrs Greenwood will move with her husband and two children to Canberra to take up the CHA role.
The CHA National Conference was a great success with over four hundred and thirty delegates attending. Planning has commenced for 2015 National Conference to be held from 24-26 August at the QT Hotel Canberra. If you are interested in undertaking sponsorship or being an exbibitor please contact Angela Lowe, Event Manager.
A reminder also to delegates, to please complete the conference evaluation as this information will help to inform planning for next years conference.
Most conference presentations have been uploaded to the CHA website, and can be accessed by clicking here. Further presentations will be uploaded in the near future. A comprehensive conference wrap up will appear in the CHA Spring edition of Health Matters.
At the CHA National Conference the My Future Care website was launched. The web based resource provides information to help ensure people think about their health care needs and discuss them with others. The resource provides a framework that is consistent with the CHA Code of Ethical Standards for Catholic health and aged care services, but has been designed to be appropriate for people of all faiths and none.
