The Chairman of Cura Day Hospitals Group, Dr Keith Zabell, today announced the appointment of Andrew Currie as the Company’s new Chief Executive Officer. 

Mr Currie has over 25 years of executive and leadership experience in the healthcare industry both in Australia and internationally. 

In his previous role as Chief Operating Officer of Evercare Group, Mr Currie was responsible for the operational performance and strategic positions of the Group’s Hospital and Diagnostic Divisions. 

Prior to joining Evercare Group, Mr Currie held the position of State Manager Hospitals – Victoria, West Australia and Tasmania at Healthscope where he led the operations of 22 hospitals. 

Announcing the appointment, Dr Keith Zabell said that the Board of Directors was delighted to have confirmed Mr Currie for this role following an extensive global search. 

“Andrew has demonstrated a commitment to the delivery of shareholder value and key financial outcomes including revenue and EBITDA growth,” said Dr Zabell.

In making the announcement, Dr Zabell also acknowledged the exceptional contribution that Mr Freeleagus has made to Cura Day Hospitals Group. 

“Peter has worked tirelessly since the company’s inception to foster meaningful relationships with Doctors, staff and other key stakeholders and also supported Cura’s interests and visibility in the Private Hospital Industry overall. 

“Under his stewardship Cura has prospered and grown into Australia’s largest Day Hospital group with a portfolio of 24 hospitals. As a direct result, Cura is now well-positioned to continue its rapid growth trajectory and provide first-rate medical facilities and services for Doctors and their patients,” said Dr Zabell.
