Anglican Care CEO, Colin Osborne, takes out National Award

In some exciting news, our CEO, Colin Osborne, has recently been announced as the ‘Most Outstanding Chief Executive Officer in the Care Sector in Australasia in 2015’ at the Australasian Over 50s Housing Awards 2015.

The awards celebrate and reward excellence in the over 50s housing sector throughout Australia and New Zealand. The philosophy behind the awards is to give recognition to efforts to advance profitability of all industry sectors and reward those who lift and enhance the customer experience via innovation.

Winners were adjudicated by a world authority to be the most outstanding exemplar in their chosen field in 2015 with Colin surpassing 11 other candidates in the criteria of ‘the best performed, most meritorious, most innovative and most courageous’ in his category.

Under Colin’s leadership since commencing with Anglican Care in July 2012, Anglican Care has implemented significant changes and experienced major growth in its care portfolio of more than 30% including; the amalgamation of Manning based residential facilities Storm Village and Bishop Tyrrell Place together with their community based services into the Anglican Care family, an expansion into the Maitland LGA with the purchase of Northwood Retirement Village, an increase in home care packages in the Manning and Central Coast regions and more recently the transfer of services from Lake Mac Care Services.  Future plans include the proposed transfer of 60 aged care licenses from Gloucester Hospital and the construction of a new facility in the Gloucester region within the next three years and the construction of the 147 place residential aged care home, Kilpatrick Court, due for completion in 2016.

On a personal level this is great news for Colin, as well as being a fantastic way to promote our organisation and our wonderful staff and volunteers, care / services and programs.  In accepting the award Colin particularly paid tribute to the Board and staff of Anglican Care.
