To kick off the programme, the Ramsay Board has announced a $1,000 Free Share Offer for all permanent Australian employees who have completed three years’ service with the Ramsay Group as at 1 July 2013. Personalised Letters of Offer have been distributed this week to approximately 14,000 employees across the country with additional information about the Offer. All eligible employees who decide to participate in the Offer will receive approximately $1,000 worth of Ramsay Shares for free and the extra benefit of any future dividends on these shares that Ramsay may pay. Speaking on the announcement of the Offer, Ramsay Managing Director Chris Rex said the aim of the new share programme was to provide long-serving staff with the opportunity to acquire an ownership interest in the Company. “The Ramsay Way recognises that our staff are our most important asset. We want to be able to reward our staff for their contribution to this great organisation and, look forward to them being a significant part of our future,” Chris said. It is Ramsay’s intention to use the new share programme as a vehicle by which the Company can deliver extra benefits to its employees into the future. Each year, the Board will make a decision on the terms of future offers (if any), including who is eligible to participate. For more information see CEO message. Ramsay Health Care took over the operation of Peel Health Campus, a public hospital located in Mandurah, on 1 June 2013. Located in one of the fastest growing regions of WA approximately 70 kilometres south of Perth, Peel Health Campus has 152 beds, a busy emergency department (seeing over 40,000 presentations per annum), medical, surgical, obstetric and rehabilitation services. It has been operated by Health Solutions WA since 1997. Ramsay Health Care Managing Director Chris Rex visited the hospital in the first week to welcome the staff and doctors to Ramsay Health Care. “We are very much looking forward to operating this hospital on behalf of the WA State Government and providing a quality health service to the local community,” Mr Rex said. He said Ramsay Health Care was committed to investing in the expansion of both the public and private capacity of the hospital as soon as possible. “The current redevelopment proposal to expand the emergency department, operating theatres, bed capacity and build a free standing collocated private hospital is one which Ramsay will seek, in conjunction with the WA Health Department, to expedite to ensure the hospital fully caters for the growing health care needs of the local population.” He said the acquisition of Peel fitted with the Company’s broader strategy of public/ private collaborations as governments sought to procure more input from private organisations in the building and operation of public hospitals.
