Southern Cross Care (Tasmania) CEO steps down following Royal Commission case study

Published on

The fallout from the Hobart hearings into the leadership and governance of aged care providers continues.

The Not For Profit’s CEO of 25 years Richard Sadek has departed the provider following the Royal Commission’s scrutiny of two of its facilities Glenara Lakes and Yaraandoo Hostel last month, according to The Mercury.

“Richard Sadek has decided to bring his retirement forward immediately in the best interests of the organisation,” Southern Cross Care chair Stephen Shirley told the paper.

“No stone will be left unturned to ensure we get the right individual to lead Southern Cross Care. It will take a little time, but we will be starting the process now.”

SCC (Tas) is the state’s largest aged care provider with over 1,100 staff across nine facilities. Acting CEO Richard Tyberek will remain as interim CEO until a new CEO is appointed.
