On behalf of the Board I am pleased to advise of the appointment of Mr Peter Abraham as the CEO of Swan Hill District Health.
Mr Abraham is highly experienced with 15 years as a CEO in the Victorian health system at Omeo, Boort, Heathcote and Kyabram. Peter originally trained as a nurse and has since completed several post-graduate management qualifications. He has a strong track record in clinical governance, patient engagement and innovation. Peter intends to relocate to Swan Hill with his wife Tracey.
Mr Abraham will commence work on 12 June 2019.
Swan Hill District Health has been privileged to be led by CEO Mr Ted Rayment for the last 12 years. With many achievements in service and infrastructure improvements, Ted has done a remarkable job as a health service leader, as a mentor, colleague and as a very active member of the Swan Hill community. In the latter role he is surpassed only by his wife, Wendy, who has taken on major leadership roles in the Hospital Auxiliary, Women Touched by Cancer and Inner Wheel with great success.
The Board is most appreciative of Ted’s dedication and his many achievements throughout his career at Swan Hill and wishes him and Wendy the very best for the future.
