New CEO for Castlemaine Health

A new CEO has been appointed to lead Castlemaine Health from early next year when current CEO Ian Fisher retires. Sue Race, the current CEO of the Kilmore & District Hospital, will take up the position of CEO from 11 January 2021.

Castlemaine Health Board Chair Peggy Ronnau said: “Sue shone throughout the interview process. She talked about her commitment to improving the healthcare people receive. She spoke passionately about engaging with the communities that health services serve.”

Having grown up on a dairy farm in Tatura in the Goulburn Valley, Sue retains a passion for working in regional and rural areas. Her academic background spans science, nutrition, business administration, project management and public policy.

Sue will bring with her an in-depth knowledge of the health care industry and the political, social and economic environment in which it operates. Having previously worked for the Department of Health and Human Services, Sue has invaluable insights into funding at both the State and Commonwealth level. She has been directly involved in contributing to the health reform agenda and the development of activity-based funding models for subacute and non-admitted patient services.

Sue’s leadership strengths are her ability to build trust, communicate compellingly, genuinely collaborate and solve complex problems. She has a strong track record of bringing staff, local residents and community partners along with her on the journey to deliver high quality and safe services for the community.

Peggy said: “We are incredibly excited about Castlemaine Health’s future with Sue and look forward to having her on board. I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Ian Fisher for his tireless work over the last seven years. It has been an absolute privilege to work with him.”
