New CEO appointed at Calvary Central Districts Hospital

Media Release

Healthcare industry veteran, Ms Elena McShane, has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of Calvary Central Districts Hospital – the only private hospital in South Australia’s northern suburbs.

Ms McShane has more than 25 years’ experience in healthcare working in various clinical and executive roles, including mental health, disability services, aged care, health call centre, and hospital administration with a range of local, regional and state wide responsibilities.

“I am delighted at being appointed CEO of such a landmark local hospital,” Ms McShane said.

“Calvary Central Districts Hospital has undergone a range of exciting new developments and redevelopments over the past few years and I am committed to continuing that growth and improvement of healthcare services,” she said.

“I am also eager to forge close relationships with the broader local community so it better understands the complete set of medical and health services this hospital provides.”

Most recently Ms McShane was Chief Executive Officer for Euroa Health, a not-for-profit organisation offering acute, aged care, allied health and day therapy services in northern Victoria.

“We are delighted to have attracted someone of Elena’s calibre to join our team in South Australia,” Calvary national chief executive, Mr Mark Doran, said today.

“Elena has the experience, knowledge and skills set to continue to build on the very good reputation and level of services Calvary Central Districts Hospital is renowned for in the community.”

“Calvary believes that Australian society is best served by a single health care system where the public and private sectors play complementary roles in delivering high quality, responsive and compassionate hospital, community and aged care services.”

Calvary Central Districts Hospital services a population of around 500,000 people, and in recent years has been actively reinvigorating its medical services, including a state of the art cancer centre and the expansion of its surgical rosters.
