The Board met yesterday afternoon to consider the employment of John Mulder as CEO of Bendigo Health. 

 The Board unanimously resolved to terminate Mr Mulder’s contract of employment with Bendigo Health. 

 Mr Mulder has been notified in writing of the Board’s decision earlier this morning. Accordingly Mr. Mulder has now ceased to be an employee of Bendigo Health. 

The Board has afforded Mr Mulder due process and procedural fairness in reaching this decision. We will not be releasing further public information about this matter- Bendigo Health does not publicly release employment files of former employees.

For Bendigo Health, today marks the beginning of a new phase in the evolution of our health service.

While our centrepiece is undoubtedly the new $630m Bendigo hospital, our work serves the needs of more than 300 000 Victorians throughout the Loddon Mallee region. 

 The Board will immediately commence the search for a new CEO to guide the service into the future. 

 The Board takes this opportunity to recognise and thank Peter Faulkner, who has so capably led Bendigo Health through a complex and extremely challenging period as acting Chief Executive Officer as we have settled into the new hospital. 

 Mr Faulkner’s has invaluable knowledge as a result of being the Executive Director of Bendigo Hospital Project and Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer. This placed Mr Faulkner in the unique position of deeply understanding the project in the early stages of settling in to the new Hospital. 

 The Board thanks all Bendigo Health staff, volunteers and our communities for their continued support.
