Last Thursday, 27th August, NHW was very pleased to welcome the Deputy Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, Frances Diver, who toured Northeast Health, met with Board and Executive staff and provided an overview of the key areas of focus for the DHHS.

The visit provided a valuable opportunity to discuss NHWs recently completed Strategic Plan, Clinical Services Plan and Master Plan for the 2015-2020 period.  The imperative for $22 million in capital development at NHW to provide the capacity for NHW to meet demand, was highlighted by NHWs Board Chair and CEO during the facility tour.

As part of Frances’ visit to the Hume region, NHW was delighted to host a very well attended dinner meeting in the Auditorium for Frances to meet with all the Hume region board chairs and discuss key issues impacting on health service delivery in our region.
