Organisational structure

The ACT Health Organisational Chart (page 6) provides an overview of the structure of the Health Directorate on 30 June 2014.

ACT Health comprises four major divisions, each led by a Deputy Director-General reporting to the Director-General.

The ACT Health Director-General guides the organisation in delivering its vision.

The Deputy Director-General-Canberra Hospital and Health Services (CHHS) oversees the majority of staff working within the Health Directorate, and CHHS provides acute, sub-acute, primary and community-based health services to the population of the ACT and surrounding region. The Little Company of Mary also provides public hospital services through Calvary Public Hospital under a contractual agreement with ACT Health.

The Strategy and Corporate Division provides policy guidance, funding and strategic planning support to clinical service areas, while planning for ACT Health's future workforce and health service needs.

Health Infrastructure and Planning Division oversees the Health Infrastructure Program, which is the single largest capital works project undertaken in the history of the Australian Capital Territory. The Health Infrastructure Program involves the modernisation of all aspects of the ACT Health system.

ACT Health's Population Health Division provides a range of public and environmental health services, health protection and health promotion services, under the guidance of the ACT Chief Health Officer/Deputy Director-General.

Other operational areas also report directly to the Director-General and provide a range of corporate support and organisation-wide services, such as quality and safety oversight and sound financial management.
