Silver Chain's McGowan appointed to head SA Health
Christopher McGowan, the CEO of Perth-based aged and palliative care provider Silver Chain, has been appointed as the new chief executive of SA Health, replacing Vickie Kaminski, who is returning to Canada.
Dr McGowan has experience in the SA health system, having worked previously with Southern Adelaide Health Service and as CEO of Noarlunga Health Services.
Dr McGowan, who has PhD in health economics with a thesis on the cost of end of life care, will begin on May 7, according to the ABC.
New SA Premier Steven Marshall promised on Wednesday to build a new women's and children's hospital co-located with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, despite estimates it could cost more than $2.5 billion.
