NCN Health CEO Resigns
NCN Health CEO Jacque Phillips has resigned from her role as CEO.
Her resignation comes after 15 years with the organisation, firstly as the CEO of Numurkah District Health Service, then Cobram District Health and Nathalia District Hospital as Acting CEO until she was appointed as the inaugural CEO of the amalgamated NCN Health.
NCN Health Director of Operations Justin Sullivan will be Acting CEO while the Board of Directors move through the recruitment process to fill the permanent CEO position.
Board Director Chair Tricia Quibell thanked Mrs. Phillips for her dedication and contribution to the health service and acknowledged she would be greatly missed across NCN Health.
“On behalf of the NCN Health Board it is my sad responsibility to inform you that our CEO, Jacque has resigned. This has been a difficult decision for Jacque to make, but after 15 years, she has decided to pursue a new career opportunity.
“Jacque has immersed herself in the role of CEO, taking great pride in the development of all teams across all campuses and leading the organisation through success and challenges, including floods, fire and more recently the COVID-19 pandemic.
“She has overseen the rebuild of the Numurkah Hospital and Community Health post the floods of 2012 to open in 2015, the transition of Nathalia District Hospital from GV Health management to being part of NCN Health, the redevelopment of the Cobram Urgent Care Centre opening in February 2024 and securing $55 million in funding for the new Numurkah Pioneers Memorial Lodge at the last State Government budget.
“Jacque is always engaged, advocating and working to provide the best quality health care for our communities.
“NCN Health will continue to grow from strength to strength, thanks in no small part to the leadership, dedication and legacy of Jacque. Importantly, we have a strong and committed leadership team ready to steer us into 2024 and beyond.”
Mrs. Phillips continues to work in the region having accepted a role at Murray Primary Health Network (PHN) as the Chief Operations Officer (COO).
