Wolper president Richard Glass said: “John has led with both commitment and compassion and we wish him a lengthy and healthy retirement.

John has been an outstanding leader, working closely with the Board and Tina Boger (Director of Clinical Services) to ensure Wolper maintained the highest quality patient care throughout the pandemic and – concurrently – a major refurbishment of the Hospital’

John Tucker said: “My time at Wolper has been extremely fulfilling, both from a work and a team perspective and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. Working closely with the broader Jewish community and its many exceptional organisations has also been an honour. I am delighted that Tina Boger has been appointed as General Manager to succeed me.”

Tina Boger has been the Hospital’s Director of Clinical Services (DCS) since 2015, having previously worked at East Sydney Private Hospital and at Ramsay Healthcare for the 15 years prior. As DCS, Tina will continue to have overall responsibility for the management, planning and evaluation of all clinical aspects of the Hospital including compliance with external guidelines and policies.

Tina commented: “I love working at Wolper and I love the community feel we all share here. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to lead the organisation”

Richard Glass added: ‘I am delighted that this is an internal appointment. Ensuring that Tina is able to maintain that focus moving forward is essential and to that end we have boosted the management ranks with the appointment of a Business Manager, reporting to Tina, to focus on the more operational aspects of Wolper and free her to continue her focus on clinical excellence.”

The role of Business Manager has been filled by Tina Sinclair, an industry veteran with broad healthcare experience having worked in – and consulted to – both the public health and private hospital sector including Wolper as Administration and Finance Manager, 1999 -2002
