The Members of St John of God Australia Limited have announced the appointment of Mr Francis Moore as a Trustee of St John of God Health Care.
His appointment takes effect on 1 July.
Mr Moore is highly respected for his outstanding credentials in Catholic leadership and governance with nearly 20 years’ experience in broad-ranging roles.

In 2017, he was made a Knight Commander of the Order of Saint Gregory by the Holy See.
St John of God Health Care Trustee Chair Hon Neville Owen AO KCSG said that Mr Moore’s background and experience positioned him well to make a valuable contribution to the governance of St John of God Health Care’s Ministry.
“Francis has extensive experience in the governance of Catholic organisations, deep understanding and knowledge of the Catholic Church in Australia and strong personal commitment to the values and ethos of St John of God Health Care,” he said.
“I welcome him warmly and look forward to working alongside him as a Trustee.”
