Where you’ll be working

In mid-2006, as part of the health reform in Western Australia, King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEMH) joined with other women’s based health services to form the new Women and Newborn Health Service (WNHS), which is a part of the larger North Metropolitan Area Health Service (NMHS).

With dedicated staff and best practices based on the most current evidence-based medicine, WNHS continues to deliver first-class health care to women and infants in WA.

KEMH is the State’s only tertiary maternity and gynaecological hospital and treated its first patients in 1916. Today more than 6000 births take place at the hospital every year and it is WA’s only major referral centre for high-risk pregnancies. KEMH also has a state-of-the-art Special Care Nursery, designed to care for premature and sick infants.

KEMH also cares for approximately 5000 women with gynaecological conditions each year – from urological and cancer related problems to sexually transmitted diseases and reproductive disorders.

KEMH is located in Subiaco in Perth’s metropolitan area. Subiaco has it all – premier fashion outlets, a vast array of restaurants and cafes and many attractions including galleries, museums and theatres. All of this can be found within an established inner city area  with vibrant parks, public art and heritage buildings provide a great backdrop for a wide variety of entertainment and education.

About the Role

The Executive Director is responsible for the delivery of high quality health care within the scope of the Women and Newborn Health Service (WNHS), ensuring financial, performance and clinical service delivery objectives are met, and activities are conducted with the highest standards of integrity, probity and governance.

About You

We are looking for an experienced senior executive with demonstrated capability to deliver outcomes in a complex hospital and health care setting. In this role, you will lead the organisation through an ongoing period of cultural reform with an emphasis on staff engagement. Strong leadership skills and a proven track record in successfully leading and managing organisational change will therefore be essential.

You will have experience managing significantly sized budgets and physical resources to meet key health service outcomes. Working across a multidisciplinary team, you will have a proven ability to positively influence and collaborate with key stakeholders and effectively interface across the health sector and with the broader community. You will exemplify personal integrity and self- awareness and act as a role model across the organisation.
