The South Pacific Division Executive Committee has appointed Brett Goods as the new CEO for Adventist HealthCare.
Adventist HealthCare Limited (AHCL) chairperson Pastor Glenn Townend said the decision was made following a lengthy and thorough consideration of local and international applicants with the expertise, knowledge and leadership capacity to complement the skills, passion and commitment of the Sydney Adventist Hospital and San Day Surgery healthcare practitioners and teams.
“With over 25 years of senior management and executive roles in the private hospital sector, Brett is an enthusiastic Christian leader with vision and a broad range of abilities to support that vision,” Pastor Townend said.
“He looks forward to working with clinicians, leaders and teams across Adventist HealthCare, who have constantly evolved to meet community needs since 1903.”
Mr Goods graduated from the San/Avondale College in 1986, and went on to serve as nursing unit manager of the cardiac surgical ward, assistant director of nursing and director of perioperative services. After leaving the San in 2002, he worked in a range of roles, including director of perioperative services at St Vincents and Mater Health, at Healthe Care Australia as CEO/director of nursing at Toronto Private Hospital and CEO at Mayo Private Hospital and Community Nursing Services, Taree. He has completed a number of leadership and management programs, including an advanced diploma in business management through New England University.
Mr Goods was appointed general manager of the San in April 2014 and has been serving as acting CEO of Adventist HealthCare since November 2017.
“We look forward to the leadership Brett will provide, and pray for God’s continued blessing on him and Adventist HealthCare,” Pastor Townend said.
