Board Bulletin – June 2020

Communication from Outgoing Board Chair
YDHS Board Chair Frankie MacLennan finishes her term at June 30 2020. On her departure, Ms MacLennan said: “It is 12 years since I started on the board. During that time, we have seen many changes and we are now on the cusp of opening a new and modern Integrated Health Care Centre which will be a major service and asset for the district’s community. We have welcomed our new Chief Executive Officer Bernadette Wardle who has brought fresh ideas into the service. The board has built professional skills and we now have a leadership group for the future. Strong community support for the service will ensure its success. We are keen to encourage bequests and donations from the community as a way of supporting this core service in Yarram. My thanks to retiring board member Dr Rosemary Irving for her 9 years of service and her leadership role on the Quality Committee. I also acknowledge the contribution of Mr John Hirt for his leadership role as a community member of our Audit and Risk Committee. Thanks for the support shown to me by the board, management and members of the community. I now handover to the deputy chair, Mr Trevor Yong who will be acting chair until elections are held in August.”
