South Gippsland Hospital (SGH) has appointed a new CEO, Ms Chris Trotman, who commenced in the role in late January following the retirement of Peter Rushen
Ms Trotman, from Leongatha, is a former Registered Nurse with tertiary qualifications in accounting, business management and governance. She has extensive experience in the health sector – most recently as CEO of a disability support service, in the Latrobe Valley.
Until her appointment at SGH Chris was a member of the Board of Gippsland Southern Health Service, and she currently sits on several other local Boards and committees.
Ms Trotman said she was looking forward to working with the Board, doctors, hospital staff and local community members to ensure the hospital and community health centre continue to provide valuable services to the Corner Inlet region into the future.
