"I am delighted to welcome Stuart as the new CEO at Radius Care. He is a strategic and forward-thinking leader who has built an excellent understanding of New Zealand’s healthcare and aged care industries over the past decade,” says Brien Cree. “He takes the role at a time where the aged care industry is in the spotlight for its efforts to keep elderly residents safe from Covid-19."
“Stuart’s warm and down-to-earth personality fits well with Radius Care’s values of ‘exceptional people, exceptional care’, and the team are glad to have him back on board,” says Brien.
“I am very happy to be back at Radius Care, and my goal is to ensure the continuous high-quality performance of our rest homes. With a rapidly expanding population of over 65s in New Zealand, the aged care industry will continue to grow, and I will ensure that Radius Care will meet the demand for first-rate facilities, run by well-trained, caring staff,” says Stuart Bilbrough.
Radius Care staff across the country have been incredible over the past few months, engaging residents in additional activities, facilitating video calls with family and upskilling themselves in areas such as infectious disease prevention and management. I’ve been inspired by their dedication and I’m excited to support them in providing excellent care,” says Stuart.
