New chief at Umina aged care home

A Umina aged care home has appointed a new chief executive.

Peninsula Villages has announced new chief executive officer Mr Colin Osborne.

Prior to joining Peninsula Villages, Mr Osborne previously served as chief executive Anglican Care, an aged care provider in Newcastle, the Hunter, Central Coast and Mid Coast.

During his time at Anglican Care from 2012 to 2020, the organisation grew by 40 per cent to have 12 residential aged care homes, eight retirement villages and 400 "community consumers".

Prior to his role in the aged care industry, Mr Osborne had a career in senior management roles in the acute hospital industry, culminating with his appointment as chief executive of the Calvary Mater Hospital where he was instrumental in its redevelopment.

Mr Osborne was also president of the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport for eight years to 2008 and has maintained his interest in motor sport.

Peninsula Villages board chair Ms Jan-Maree Tweedie said: "Colin is a passionate and talented leader, bringing highly relevant aged care experience and skills to the position following his tenure at Anglican Care for more than eight years.

"Colin is an advocate for improving the care and quality of life for all of our residents and recognises the essential role that each and every member of our team plays in delivering choice to those they work with.

"Colin has already displayed a fantastic commitment to our values and is leading the team for a new era in 2022," said Ms Tweedie.

Ms Tweedie said Mr Osborne will be supported by an executive team with Ms Jackie Bennett as chief operating officer, Ms Louise Clarke as executive care manager and Ms Nicola Burton leading organisational development.

"I am honoured to lead this innovative, community-focused organisation and have already been astounded by its dedication to being an aged care provider that breaks the mould when it comes to delivering care to its residents," said Mr Osborne.

"Peninsula Villages is a progressive community organisation that has been driven by the passion and I hope that I can continue this commitment and bring new skills and enthusiasm to the role," he said.
