Communication from new CEO

Dear Adventist HealthCare community,

I am honoured and humbled by my appointment on Tuesday 8th September as Adventist HealthCare Limited Chief Executive Officer.

It is a privilege to follow in the footsteps of former CEO Dr Leon Clark.

As Leon’s Deputy for the last 13 years I have experienced first-hand his vision, his leadership, operational and political skills that mean AHCL is exceptionally well positioned to meet the future healthcare needs of our community.

Leon has been an inspiration and a mentor, and has become a close and trusted friend. I wish him well in retirement and value his continuing role as San Foundation Chairman.

My appointment as CEO is both personally and professionally rewarding. After starting my nursing studies at the San in 1984 and through progressive roles in management, administration and senior leadership I have been privileged to work alongside exceptional staff and members of the AHCL community. I was excited to be part of the team involved in the planning for the Redevelopment and to be the executive responsible for the infrastructure works program during construction from 2011-2013.

My personal beliefs and values of service, mission, teamwork, quality and best practice, and commitment to innovation have been strengthened by the significant changes the San and AHCL have gone through over this time.

Our mission of Christianity in Action provides us with a reason for being. Our passionate and expert people provide us with the inspiration. Our recent major redevelopment and upgrades provide us with the resources. Our ageing community that needs access to quality healthcare provide us with an ever increasing demand for our services.

State-of-the-art and expanded services at the San, refurbishment of dedicated rehabilitation and other short stay facilities at Killara’s Dalcross Adventist Hospital, expert day surgery capacity at San Day Surgery Hornsby, and San Radiology’s expansion and recognition as a Centre of Excellence for Prostate MRI, means that we are well equipped. Future development of the Centre of Excellence will further enhance AHCL quality service offering to our community.

I look forward to working with AHCL's leadership, staff, specialists, volunteers, the San Foundation, Avondale College, our clinical school and The University of Sydney and other personnel and organisations.

I am available on 9487 9421 or at phil.currie@sah.org.au.

Phil Currie
Chief Executive Officer Adventist HealthCare Limited
