Vaughan Harding retires from Juniper – MercyCare’s Chris Hall appointed new CEO

Published on

Widely regarded as a leader in the sector, Mr Harding is stepping down after almost three decades at the WA provider’s helm.

Joining the Not For Profit in 1989, he led the organisation to become one of the largest care providers in the country. He also chaired the national board of Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA) from 2012 to 2015 and was last year recognised for services to aged care with a Medal of the Order of Australia.

Mr Harding will be succeeded in August by Mr Hall, who has been CEO of the WA Not For Profit MercyCare since 2010 and has over 35 years’ experience in the aged care, health and community sectors.

He will be hitting the ground running. Juniper plans to double its care footprint with more than $150 million in current and planned aged care and retirement village developments in seven locations.

Juniper currently has 14 retirement villages and 24 aged care facilities in WA plus home care services.
