Manager appointed to lead Wairoa Integrated Health Service project

Napier businessman Alan Mackintosh has been appointed Wairoa Integrated Health Service project manager to see the planning of the integrated health centre through to fruition.

Mr Mackintosh has held a number of project manager positions for other DHBs and has previously worked for Hawke’s Bay District Health Board where he helped to develop and implement the rollout of the national immunisation register, and he was also involved in improving the diabetes services project.

He’s no stranger to Wairoa where he has a number of family and friends living in the area and he is looking forward to having more time to catch-up with them as his new role will see him living in Wairoa at least three days a week.

Mr Mackintosh praised the work of the project team including project leader Hayley Anderson who he said had laid solid foundations for the project to build on and had everyone talking and wanting to achieve better sustainable health services for Wairoa.

“To me being involved in a project which will make such a difference to the area was a huge attraction to applying for the position.

“My strengths lie in getting people to work together and building up on the layers and implementing the work to become a reality,” he said.

Mr Mackintosh holds a Bachelor of Business Studies degree and has extensive qualifications, knowledge and experience in project management.

He will take up his role on Monday May 30.
