Tuesday, 23 May 2017
This month Otway Health welcomed Kate Gillan as acting CEO. Kate is the CEO of Lorne Community Hospital and will be the CEO of both organisations concurrently. Kate has extensive experience delivering health services along the Great Ocean Road and brings a working knowledge of the challenges small rural health services face. The Otway Health Board has set priorities for Kate that include; refurbishment of the Aged Care and Urgent Care wings, implementing recommendations from the 2016 Cultural Review and creating service delivery plans to implement the Strategic Plan 2017 -2021. Kate will be working closely with the Apollo Bay and District Health Foundation in the joint project currently underway into the Integrated Primary Care Review. The aim of this review is to build and strengthen the health services that work alongside Otway Health’s Urgent Care Unit as it delivers 24 hour healthcare to the community all year round.
