Experience

Central Adelaide Health Network

KordaMentha was engaged to undertake a diagnostic review of South Australia’s largest public healthcare network, CALHN, a circa $2 billion organisation with five main hospitals.

The review uncovered a broken organisation facing systemic financial, operational and cultural issues. Forecasts indicated the funded position would be exceeded by $274 million.

In response, KordaMentha developed a three-year Organisational and Financial Recovery Plan and were engaged as Administrators to implement the Plan. The Plan was designed to reposition CALHN as a modern, high-functioning network, delivering sustainable care for the community.
