Rural Northwest Health’s new Hopetoun campus manager brings a wealth of medical experience and qualifications to her role.
Jayne Maddick is a qualified critical care nurse and has worked in Melbourne health services in various management roles. Her most recent post was as hospital coordinator at Cabrini Health and prior to that, she was director of nursing at a private health unit in Melbourne.
RNH CEO Kevin Mills said Jayne’s appointment was an exciting development for his team.
“Jayne has extensive management background but it’s her knowledge and experience in emergency that adds another level to our organisation,” Mr Mills said.
“We will look to tap into that knowledge wherever possible,” he said.
“Jayne’s skillset complements our leadership team as we move into an exciting new phase in delivering outstanding care and services for our community.”
Jayne said the reasoning behind her shift to Hopetoun was to get back to the country life.
“I grew up in Melbourne but my husband Rick is from Echuca,” Jayne said.
“After we married we lived at Echuca for 10 years and started our family there before moving to South Gippsland,” she said.
“I returned to working in the city while we lived in a small town there.”
The Maddicks have four adult sons.
In her spare time, Jayne is busy completing an honours program with Deakin University where she is studying psychology. She also enjoys kayaking, hiking, sewing and knitting.
