Southern Cross Healthcare has appointed Mark Stewart as Chief Operating Officer, which they say completes recent changes to the executive team. From the Southern Cross media release:
"Mr Stewart brings with him a wealth of expertise in developing innovative strategies within complex environments and leading business transformations. He joins Southern Cross from PwC, where he led the company’s engagement with national telehealth service Whakarongorau Aotearoa.
Prior to that role, Mr Stewart spent more than a decade working for NZ Post, including four years as the state-owned enterprise’s COO. There, he held operational and strategic leadership for more than 5,000 people and co-led the organisation’s transformation in supporting the growing demands of online retail.
Mr Stewart has also spent several years working in the UK and has completed a PhD in Management Science/Operations Research.
Southern Cross Healthcare CEO Chris White says Mr Stewart’s experience makes him the ideal choice for leading operational functions across the hospitals side of the business.
“Mark has a strong track record in leadership and change management within large-scale, complex environments, and these skills will be critical as Southern Cross Healthcare evolves into a more integrated healthcare system that offers consistently high-quality care,” he said.
Mr Stewart will be joining Southern Cross Healthcare from 20 June 2022.
