Kylie Woolcock appointed AHHA Chief Executive
The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association has appointed Kylie Woolcock as Chief Executive.
AHHA Board Chair Jillian Skinner said, "Kylie is an outstanding choice, bringing a wealth of policy and advocacy experience to the role; as well as an extensive understanding in the for-purpose sector."
She has worked in the health sector for over 20 years and has spent the past few months connecting with the AHHA membership, key stakeholders in government and partners to understand their priorities in health system reform, Skinner said.
"She has also supported the dedicated team in our Canberra office as they emerge from COVID lockdowns, bringing a fresh approach to operations that ensure a strong focus on member needs, efficiencies to meet member expectations and clear lines of accountability within the organisation.
Woolcock said AHHA holds a unique position, bringing together perspectives from across the healthcare system to advocate for effective, accessible, equitable and sustainable health care focused on quality outcomes to benefit the whole community. "Over the past 6 months, I have been meeting with the AHHA membership and continue to be inspired by their work to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians, particularly as the sector continues to face the challenges of COVID-19.
"Enabling the system to reorient as a whole towards achieving the outcomes that matter to people and communities requires drawing the evidence base together with the experience of our members. Together we can ensure data is used with clinical expertise and local experience and relationships to drive the health system that Australians deserve."
