Hynes Lawyers has announced the appointment of well-known aged care industry figure Rod Young as a consultant to the firm’s aged care and retirement living practice.

Mr Young brings over 30 years’ health and aged care experience to the role, and an extensive network of contacts as the former CEO of national peak body Aged Care Association Australia (ACAA), whose members formed a new national peak body, Leading Age Services Australia, earlier this year.

Rod will now work with Hynes Lawyers in addition to a government liaison role he took up in April with IRT, a provider of retirement living and aged care services in southern NSW and the ACT.

Mr Young will work closely with Julie McStay, partner and head of the Hynes Lawyers aged care and retirement living team.

Ms McStay said the firm had already worked with Mr Young on matters related to aged care reform in his former role at ACAA.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have Rod join our aged care team,” Ms McStay said in a statement. “Rod’s wealth of experience brings even more depth to our team and will enable us to offer a level of expertise in legal services to aged care providers which we believe is second to none.”

According to the announcement, Mr Young’s extensive experience includes managing complicated infrastructure projects, managing a teaching hospital complex, working on health systems re-design and developing health and aged care policy reform.
