Anglican Care CEO, Colin Osborne has won ‘Most Outstanding Chief Executive Officer in the Care Sector in Australasia in 2015’ at the Australasian Over 50s Housing Awards 2015 announced in Melbourne on Friday, 6 November 2015.
The awards celebrate and reward excellence in the over 50s housing sector throughout Australia and New Zealand. The philosophy behind the awards is to give recognition to efforts to advance profitability of all industry sectors and reward those who lift and enhance the customer experience via innovation.
Winners were adjudicated by a world authority to be the most outstanding exemplar in their chosen field in 2015 with Colin surpassing 11 other candidates in the criteria of ‘the best performed, most meritorious, most innovative and most courageous’ in his category.
Colin said he was very humbled to have received the award.
“It is satisfying to be recognised, but Anglican Care’s continued success within the aged care industry is not possible without the support of my wonderful staff and volunteers,” Colin said.
Anglican Care provides a wide choice of quality services to seniors in the Hunter, Central Coast and Manning Regions. They aim to enhance the wellbeing and quality of life of residents, consumers and their families and carers.
Colin is responsible to the Board of Anglican Care for all aspects of the business, both strategic and operational. He commenced as Chief Executive Officer in July 2012, bringing to the role extensive experience in the acute health care sector. He was formerly the General Manager at the Calvary Mater Hospital in Newcastle during its redevelopment.
Under Colin’s governance, Anglican Care has implemented significant changes and experienced major growth in its care portfolio of more than 30 per cent including the amalgamation of Manning based residential facilities Storm Village and Bishop Tyrrell Place together with their community based services into the Anglican Care family, an expansion into the Maitland LGA with the purchase of Northwood Retirement Village and more recently the transfer of services from Lake Mac Care Services.
Future plans include the proposed transfer of 60 aged care licenses from Gloucester Hospital and the construction of a new facility in the Gloucester region within the next three years and the construction of the 147 place residential aged care home, Kilpatrick Court, due for completion in 2016.
