East Metropolitan Health Service Board

The Health Services Bill 2016 was enacted on 1 July 2016 to establish the State’s Health Services as separate, board-governed statutory authorities.

This involved establishing the East Metropolitan Health Service (EMHS) as a separate statutory authority, governed by a Board that is legally responsible and accountable for the delivery of safe, high-quality, efficient and economical health services to its local community.

The EMHS Board is legally responsible and accountable for the oversight of EMHS hospitals and health services and is chaired by Mr Ian Smith PSM.

The EMHS Board is comprised of 10 highly capable and committed professionals with a diverse range of experience across the fields of medicine and health care, finance, law, and community and consumer engagement.
