The Department of Health has announced the appointment of Professor Andrew Way as the new Chair of the HSV Board.

Andrew will fill the Board position held by Lance Wallace, who will be stepping down from his role as Board Chair when his appointment ends on 30 June.

Lance has been the Board Chair since January 2021 and also holds the position of the Chair of the Major Projects and ICT Committee until his departure.

Andrew has served as Chief Executive of Alfred Health since 2009 but will be stepping down from that position in the new financial year. Andrew led the development of Monash Partners, Victoria’s first Academic Health Science Centre and was appointed as an Adjunct Clinical Professor in the School of Public Health and Preventative Medicine, Faculty of Medicine Nursing and Health Sciences, Monash University in 2015. Additionally, he holds several non-executive and advisory roles both in Australia and more widely. 

Quality and safety in patient care, the development of academic medical organisations, patient flow and experience, and using IT as a clinical enabler are some of Andrew’s key areas of professional interest.

The HSV Board, Executive Leadership Team and wider HSV team thank Lance for his service to HSV and welcome Andrew to the Board.
