CALHN was heading towards a loss of more than $500 million over two years before the South Australian Government appointed KordaMentha as administrators to turn around the performance of the health network.
Chris explained that a common view was that putting more money into healthcare would deliver better patient outcomes, but that administrators had found, in many cases, spending more money on healthcare was a sign of deteriorating health outcomes. “Most of the clinical key performance indicators improved, so we showed the organisation that you can deliver better healthcare cheaper,” he said.
ABL Partner Bridget Little and Senior Associate Rachel Soh, who have advised on the IR and employment aspects of this important turnaround journey, congratulated the teams from KordaMentha and CALHN for their work in achieving such a significant financial and operational recovery to date.
