PROFESSOR Tracy Levett-Jones, Dr Brent Jenkins and Timothy Ebbeck join a now 10-strong Board that has the overall responsibility of maintaining and improving patient outcomes and delivering services that meet the needs of the community. Board Chair Professor Donald MacLellan welcomed the experience the new members will bring.


“It is with particular delight that I welcome our three new members to the Central Coast Local Health District Board. They will bring their considerable experience in governance, patient safety and quality care, health research and finance,” Professor MacLellan said.


Professor Levett-Jones is the Head of the School of Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Technology, Sydney. With more than 40 years’ clinical and academic experience, she is recognised as one of the top nursing researchers in Australia.


Dr Jenkins is an experienced chief executive, manager and strategic consultant with extensive experience working in research and technology intensive industries, including with Hunter Research Foundation, The University of Newcastle and BHP.


Mr Ebbeck has extensive experience in roles as a chairman, non-executive director, board advisor, committee chair, chief executive and chief financial officer across the technology, media, sport, and finance industries. He was formerly Chief Executive Officer Oracle Australia New Zealand and SAP Australia New Zealand, as well as Chief Commercial Officer, NBN Co and a long-time Trustee of the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences of NSW.


“The skills of our new members will undoubtedly strengthen the Board and complement the experiences of current Board members,” said Professor MacLellan.


Central Coast Local Health District’s Chief Executive, Scott McLachlan, said the new members will help the District deliver its vision for a healthy and vibrant Central Coast community.


“All three incoming board members have the passion and experience to support our vision to deliver the best possible care services, now and into the future,” Mr McLachlan said.


Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch congratulated the three new board members on their appointment.


“Professor Tracey Levett-Jones, Dr Brent Jenkins and Timothy Ebbeck will bring considerable professional experience, providing significant benefit to the board of the Central Coast Local Health District,” Mr Crouch said.


“I would also like to acknowledge the contribution of the former board members and thank them for their time supporting the team at Central Coast Health.”


Each new board member will serve a three-year term.
