Australia’s largest Catholic not-for-profit health and aged care provider, St Vincent’s Health Australia (SVHA), has appointed Toby Hall to the position of Group Chief Executive Officer, commencing early 2014.
Toby joins SVHA from Mission Australia – Australia's largest national community welfare services organisation – where he has been CEO for almost eight years.
SVHA Chairman, Paul Robertson AM, says: “We are delighted to announce Toby’s appointment following an extensive international search. This decision has been fully endorsed by the Trustees of Mary Aikenhead Ministries and the SVHA Board.”
Toby has an extensive background working as a senior executive in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors. His commitment to the poor and vulnerable, both in Australia and internationally, has seen him in leadership roles at World Vision and governance roles with two regional hospitals and health care services provider, Sterihealth.
During Toby’s leadership, Mission Australia established its Early Learning Services as well as Mission Australia Housing, and acquired ABC Childcare (now Goodstart Early Learning).
“With this significant appointment to our senior leadership team, the Board and the Trustees are confident that SVHA is well placed to strengthen and grow our Mission and our health service as one national organisation,” Mr Robertson says.
Toby Hall says: “I am pleased to have the opportunity to lead and contribute to St Vincent’s Health Australia. Each year, the organisation provides over 1 million moments of care to Australians and makes real the Healing Ministry of Jesus. The iconic public hospitals of St Vincent’s in Queensland, Sydney and Melbourne are centres of compassionate care.”
“The commitment to Australians and their health requirements through private hospitals and meeting the ever emerging need through Aged Care homes for our older Australians builds on a proud tradition of service established by the Sisters of Charity just on 175 years ago.”
“The invitation to contribute to such a tradition of service to the community will inspire me each day,” Mr Hall says.
