Message from the Board Chair – Monash Health Chief Executive appointment

Monash Health is pleased to announce that after a robust selection process attracting an outstanding field of national and international candidates, Professor Eugine Yafele will be the next Chief Executive for Monash Health.

Eugine is currently the Chief Executive Officer at University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust. Prior to that, Professor Yafele held the Chief Executive Officer position at Dorset Healthcare University NHS Foundation Trust and in 2022 was recognised as the top CEO in the NHS by the Health Service Journal. In addition to bringing a deep and broad experience across senior clinical, leadership and operational roles, Eugine is particularly interested in value-based healthcare and reducing health inequities.

Professor Yafele will relocate from the United Kingdom to Australia and start with Monash Health by May 2024. In the interim, Martin Keogh will continue to act as Chief Executive. The Board and I would like to express our gratitude to Martin for so ably leading Monash Health during a time of significant change and transition for our organisation.

Please join me and my fellow Board members in congratulating Professor Yafele and welcoming him to Monash Health.
