It is with profound sorrow that I learned today of the death of Albury Wodonga Health Chief Executive Officer Michael Kalimnios.
Michael was a highly skilled and ethical health services leader with more than three decades’ experience in public health administration across Australia.
His calm and considered leadership throughout these difficult COVID times, and prior to that during the shocking bushfires of 2019/2020 have been truly appreciated by our border community.
I have greatly valued my regular meetings with Michael and his wise advice over the past three years. I offer my sincere condolences to Michael’s family and to all the staff and board at Albury Wodonga Health.
He will be deeply missed. Vale Michael.
