AUSTIN HEALTH

Mr CARBINES (Ivanhoe) (13:59): I rise to acknowledge the service of Dr Max Alexander, and to quote his own letter:

“It has been a privilege to have had the opportunity to be the interim CEO at Austin Health over this short time and to work with such a committed and passionate team who make a significant contribution to patient care.”

I do want to thank Dr Alexander for the confidence and the leadership he has shown over several months at Austin Health as interim CEO and also take the opportunity for us to welcome Adam Horsburgh as CEO on 15 June. Mr Horsburgh has extensive health sector management experience in Victoria as well as in the UK’s National Health Service. He is currently the deputy CEO and chief operating officer at Melbourne Health, and he has also had senior policy and adviser experience with the Victorian government, including at the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Premier and Cabinet. We are very much looking forward to him joining the team at Austin Health.
