Welcome to our first CEO newsletter of 2021 – it’s certainly been a busy start to the year as I settle into the role of Acting CEO, following in the footsteps of Max Robins who lead CHT Healthcare for over two decades. My role as Chief Financial Officer at CHT started in 2020 and gave me some excellent experience with the ins and outs of the organisation, and I have expanded my knowledge tremendously since I took on the Acting CEO role.

Our senior management team has also had a period of transition but is back to full strength as we welcome Wynonna Faustino (former Unit Manager at CHT Peacehaven) and Helen Franklin as Area Managers.

I’ve been very impressed with the resilience and adaptability of our 16 facilities as we moved in and out of COVID-19 lock downs over the past couple of months. The commitment and compassion of our staff to ensure our residents are safe and cared for has been nothing short of inspiring and we thanked them for their hard work at our annual CHT Foundation Day on 22 March with a small token of our appreciation. We also appreciate the ongoing support and co-operation of our residents’ families during the lockdowns.

My visits to the CHT facilities in the Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions this year have highlighted to me again how important it is for us to continually look at ways to reinvest our surplus into improving our Units. The upgrades made to many of our facilities over the past 18 months have been transformative and we have a number of projects scheduled for this year to continue our momentum in the property development area.

Wishing you all a safe and enjoyable Easter.

URGENT COVID-19 UPDATE:
Level 4 lock down – all CHT Facilities

Dear Family Member / Whanau of Resident in CHT Facility,

In response to the Prime Minister’s escalation this afternoon of the national alert level for COVID-19 to level three today, then to level 4 tomorrow, we are placing all CHT facilities into complete lock down to protect the health of our residents and staff, effective immediately. You can find out more about the Prime Minister’s announcement here.

Appropriate levels of care will continue to be delivered and GP consultations will be conducted via video or phone unless urgently required.

Please do not attempt to visit any relatives or staff as you will be turned away. Likewise residents are not permitted to leave the Facility. Should you have any questions, please contact the Unit Manager at your CHT Facility.

We will continue to update you as information becomes available from the Ministry of Health. You can view the Ministry of Health’s latest updates here.

Thank you for your patience at this time, and for helping to protect our residents and staff.

Yours sincerely,

Max Robins Chief Executive
