Martin Bowles heads to Calvary to replace Mark Doran
The former secretary of the federal Department of Health Martin Bowles has been appointed as national CEO of Calvary Health Care, following his announcement last week that he was retiring from the public service.
Mr Bowles will replace Mark Doran, who is retiring after holding the position for nine years. Mr Bowles will start on November 1.
Little Company of Mary Health Care chairman John Watkins said Mr Bowles' experience in health and his leadership capacity were key to his appointment.
“Martin’s obvious capability, outstanding leadership qualities and deep commitment to serving the people of Australia strongly aligns with Calvary’s mission to provide quality, compassionate health care to our communities, including the most vulnerable and those reaching the end of their life,” Mr Watkins said in a statement.
“As NCEO, Martin is extremely well placed to continue Calvary’s plans to grow and strengthen our business, following on from Mark Doran’s exceptional leadership and contribution to Calvary during the past nine years.”
Mr Bowles will work alongside former KPMG director Robin Mann, who is Calvary's national chief of innovation. Dr Mann led eHealth NSW's electronic medication management program among other eHealth initiatives.
Little Company of Mary Health Care runs 15 Calvary public and private hospitals, 17 aged care facilities and a range of community care services.
