The Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Board will benefit from the experience and skills of three new members, while seven existing members will continue in their positions.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Health and Ambulance Services Steven Miles welcomed the news and said the combination of new skills and perspectives, combined with the stability of the reappointments and continuing members, would maintain the strength of the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service.

“The appointments of Associate Professor Edward Weaver OAM, Ms Sabrina Walsh and Mr Terrance Bell are excellent additions to the Board, bringing significant leadership, knowledge and expertise to our health services in the Sunshine Coast area,” Deputy Premier Miles said.

“These three new members come from a broad range of professional backgrounds such as Indigenous engagement, obstetrics and gynaecology, and IT investment and strategic planning in a health setting.

“I am also pleased to announce the continued commitment of seven members who have been reappointed or will continue their term to ensure health services across the Sunshine Coast region will continue to exceed expectations.

“It’s a testament to their past success and ability to work together that the Board is able to provide continuity and strong governance, led by continuing Chair Dr Lorraine Ferguson AM.

“The Board has served the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service and community extremely well and will continue to do so bolstered by its new members.”
