Spiro Stavis’ appointment of interim chief executive officer of St Basil’s NSW/ACT has been made permanent, the aged care provider has announced.
The orgainsation, which was created by the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia, and its 650-strong workforce provide culturally specific care for thousands of seniors across NSW and the ACT. It provides residential aged care, home care, day care and respite services.
Mr Stavis has worked at St Basil’s NSW/ACT for six years including the last 18 months as the interim CEO. During his time as interim CEO Mr Stavis drove the development of St Basil’s five-year person-centered strategic plan, said St Basil’s NSW/ACT chairman James Jordan.
“Spiro has since led a restructure of the organisation to enable a better level of care and support of our residents and consumers, and most recently has introduced new initiatives to St Basil’s such as Emotional Wellbeing for Older People program, obtained grant funding for new HR and governance systems to support the operational aspects of our services, and invested in improved infection control measures and planning for the ultimate health and safety of residents,” Mr Jordan said in a statement.
Noting that the aged care industry is continuously evolving, Mr Jordan said Mr Stavis’ deep understanding of consumer needs will continue to drive the St Basil’s team on its current trajectory to fulfil its mission of: “Delivering quality services to support individual needs of ageing Australians including Greek Australians.”
As previously reported, in 2021 the NSW Indepedent Comission Against Corruption found Mr Stavis had engaged in “serious corrupt conduct” between 2014 and 2016 in relation to planning proposals in his is role as Director of City Planning at Canterbury City Council.
