The Dental Health Services Victoria (DHSV) board of directors recently appointed Susan McKee to the role of chief executive officer.
McKee will commence as CEO on 6 January 2020 and will work closely with current CEO Dr Deborah Cole, the executive team, the board, and staff to ensure a smooth transition.
McKee brings a wealth of clinical and leadership expertise to the role with over 35 years’ experience in the health sector—as a registered nurse, nursing director, COO and chief executive of several public, not-for-profit and privately-owned organisations.
Her most recent position at DHSV was as chief value officer.
McKee is committed to finding new ways to improve the oral health outcomes of the community, particularly those experiencing disadvantage.
She is also a vocal advocate for co-designing the oral health system in partnership with consumers and the workforce ensuring their voices are heard, understood and acted on.
