GV HEALTH recently announced that Matt Sharp would be taking over as the new CEO following the completion of a recent recruitment process for the role.
GV Health Board chair, Rebecca Woolstencroft said, “Matt brings more than 13 years’ experience as a health care executive in roles overseeing primary, acute, subacute, aged, mental health as well as alcohol and drug services in both metropolitan and rural Victoria.”
Ms Woolstencroft said that Mr Sharp is an effective leader who is deeply committed to achieving improved health outcomes for patients, the broader community and the public health system.
“I am delighted to make this announcement on behalf of the board and we welcome Matt to GV Health and thank him for the work he has done so far as interim CEO over the past four months,” Ms Woolstencroft said.
Ms Woolstencroft said Mr Sharp joins GV Health at an exciting time with a new strategic plan close to being finalised, expansion of services underway across GV Health and redevelopments at the Shepparton hospital and Rushworth campus well advanced. Ms Woolstencroft also said Mr Sharp’s focus on patient care outcomes and improving patient experience will be complementary to the direction of GV Health.
Previously Mr Sharp held the role of executive director clinical operations at Eastern Health in Melbourne for more than four years and prior to that he was the chief executive officer of Rochester and Elmore District Health Service for three years.
Mr Sharp will begin his new role immediately having commenced as interim CEO in late June 2018.
