Exciting time for healthcare governance

Posted 25 May 2017

Former hospital clinician and quality and safety expert Jo-Anne Moorfoot has been appointed to lead the Australian Centre of Healthcare Governance, it was announced this week.

Ms Moorfoot will lead the revitalisation of the healthcare governance support service in the newly-created role of executive director, said the chief executive of the Victorian Healthcare Association Tom Symondson.

The ACHG, which assists public and private health services to fulfil their governance responsibilities, is an arm of the VHA.

“Jo-Anne brings a wealth of health governance and organisational transformational change experience which will be enormously beneficial to health services,” Mr Symondson said.

“Ensuring our health services are supported by good governance is of paramount importance. So the VHA is making a significant investment to develop this important resource.”

Ms Moorfoot has worked in senior governance, risk and compliance roles at Austin and Monash Health services and has a background in community health and the rural health sector.

“I’m really looking forward to the opportunity to work with Australia’s health services and their boards by assisting them with best practice support to help them deliver exceptional care,” she said.
