The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association is delighted to announce the appointment of Ms Kylie Woolcock as Chief Executive.

AHHA Board Chair the Hon Jillian Skinner said Kylie’s appointment follows on from a busy six months acting in the role.

‘Kylie is an outstanding choice, bringing a wealth of policy and advocacy experience to the role; as well as an extensive understanding in the for-purpose sector.

‘Ms Woolcock has worked in the health sector for over 20 years, and has spent the past few months connecting with our membership, key stakeholders in government and our partners to understand their priorities in health system reform.

‘She has also supported the dedicated team in our Canberra office as they emerge from Covid lock downs, bringing a fresh approach to operations that ensure a strong focus on member needs, efficiencies to meet member expectations and clear lines of accountability within the organisation.

‘This appointment marks an exciting new chapter for AHHA and the Board is looking forward to working with Kylie to ensure that AHHA continues to deliver on its vision for a ‘healthy Australia, supported by the best possible healthcare system.’

Commenting on the appointment, Ms Woolcock said she was excited to be taking on the role.

‘AHHA holds a unique position, bringing together perspectives from across the healthcare system to advocate for effective, accessible, equitable and sustainable health care focused on quality outcomes to benefit the whole community,’ she said.

‘Over the past 6 months, I have been meeting with the AHHA membership and continue to be inspired by their work to improve the health and wellbeing of Australians, particularly as the sector continues to face the challenges of COVID-19.

‘Enabling the system to reorient as a whole towards achieving the outcomes that matter to people and communities requires drawing the evidence base together with the experience of our members. Together we can ensure data is used with clinical expertise and local experience and relationships to drive the health system that Australians deserve.’

Ms Woolcock’s appointment took effect from Tuesday 21st June 2022.

The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association (AHHA) is the independent peak membership body and advocate for the Australian healthcare system and national voice for universally accessible, high quality health care in Australia.
