Morwell-based Maryvale Private Hospital has announced the appointment of its new chief executive officer.
Mr Lee Garwood, who has 14 years experience in nursing and health care leadership experience, joins the hospital having most recently served as CEO of Brunswick Private Hospital.
“What keeps me motivated and inspired is the ability to make a difference to people’s lives,” said Mr Garwood.
“Despite being in executive leadership roles, I work clinically every so often to maintain my skills and to understand patients’ and caregivers’ experiences.”
Mr Garwood said a priority is close ties with the local community with an emphasis on quality care.
“I’m excited to work with the Maryvale Private team to bring safe, quality care to Gippsland and strengthen our links with the community,” said Mr Garwood.
