Greg Mundy has been appointed as the new chief executive officer of Rural Health Workforce Australia (RHWA), the peak body for the national network of state and territory Rural Workforce Agencies.
Mr Mundy joins RHWA after three years as CEO of the Council of Ambulance Authorities, the peak body representing providers of public ambulance services in Australia and New Zealand. Before that he was CEO of Aged and Community Services Australia.
The chair of RHWA, Ian Taylor, welcomed Mr Mundy’s appointment.
“Greg is widely respected for his commitment to health and social care,” Mr Taylor said. “He will be a strong advocate for our agenda to make primary health care more accessible for rural Australians.”
Mr Mundy said it was an exciting time to be joining RHWA and the RWA network.
“Rural Workforce Agencies have been successfully delivering health workforce initiatives in rural, regional and remote communities for the last 25 years,” he said. “Each year they recruit hundreds of health professionals and provide services to them such as professional development and family support. It’s great to be part of such a positive movement.”
In addition to his current responsibilities, Mr Mundy is a board director of the National Rural Health Alliance and a council member of the Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association. He started work at RHWA on 5 May and is based in Melbourne.
