Welcome to our newly elected board directors

October 6, 2022

The VHA held its annual general meeting on Thursday 6 October, during which VHA Board Chair Sue Matthews announced the results of our recent board election process.

This year, the VHA called for nominations for three vacant positions:

  • Community health service, board member representative
  • Metropolitan health service, board member representative
  • Rural health service, CEO representative

As we received multiple nominations in each category, an online election process was held.

The newly elected board directors announced at the AGM were:

  • Tony McBride, Board Chair, Your Community Health
  • Nicole Bartholomeusz, Deputy Chair, Dental Health Services Victoria
  • Dominic Sandilands, CEO, Corryong Health

Additionally, Deputy Chair Trevor Adem has been appointed to serve as a board-appointed director for a one-year term to ensure continuity of the board.

Thank you to all the nominees for their applications to represent their respective voting categories on the board, and thanks to all members that voted.

We would also like to acknowledge Glenis Beaumont and Les Reti for their valuable contribution to the VHA as board member representatives.

The Board of Directors is a representative board of CEOs and board directors from across metropolitan, regional and rural hospitals and community health services who oversee the direction and strategy of the VHA.

Elected by members, this breadth of representation ensures the governance structure truly reflects the diversity of the membership and provides a strong understanding of public healthcare across Victoria.
