In Brief: Fong takes role at Prime Health Group

FORMER health chief Neale Fong has emerged with his second major role since quitting the public service, this time in a field more closely related to his medical background. Dr Fong has joined the board of John Poynton’s corporate health and training services provider, Prime Heath Group, which has been expanding rapidly to reach 300 staff, mainly in Western Australia. Prime also has operations in Dubai and New Zealand. Two months ago, Dr Fong emerged with a new role as executive chairman of Subiaco-based Chrysalis Resources Ltd, which has lodged a prospectus to raise up to $4 million in its initial public offering to fund drilling for gold, iron ore, uranium and nickel prospects across WA. That move came shortly after he quit his health department role, having become embroiled in the controversy surrounding lobbyist Brian Burke. Mr Fong also chairs the WA Football Commission and is on the board of Churches of Christ Homes and Community Services. Prime chief executive Greg Hutchison said Dr Fong, the former CEO of St John of God Subiaco, brought considerable understanding of how the health sector worked. Mr Fong said Prime had strong growth potential and he was attracted to the opportunity within a sector he knew well.
