New Orbost hospital chief announced

New Orbost hospital chief announced

From the small rural community in which she grew up, to the trauma ward of one of the biggest hospitals in the world, Dr Lindy Washington has seen a lot in her career in medicine so far.
And she's bringing that experience to Orbost Regional Health (ORH) for the next nine months as interim chief executive officer.
Longtime ORH CEO Vicki Farthing is currently filling the role of Bairnsdale Regional Health Service (BRHS) CEO while its regular leader takes long service leave.
Ms Washington said while she can understand why some people in the community might be perplexed at all this CEO movement, the most important thing is that health services remain unchanged and that the people of Orbost continue to get the best quality care.
"It was immediately obvious to me when I arrived last month how wonderful the staff are here, and how committed they are to this community," Ms Washington said.
