Fred French Masonic Nursing Home Inc and Masonic Peace Memorial Haven of Northern Tasmania Inc (together previously known as Masonic Homes of Northern Tasmania) and Freemasons’ Homes of Southern Tasmania Inc. have joined forces to form Masonic Care Tasmania (MCT).
Offering a wide range of services, the new organisation will lead the development and delivery of individualised aged care and health care services for people who are ageing. This includes an integrated range of residential aged care, independent living, home care services and a strong desire to diversify its current offering.
The three providers have long and honoured histories, strong brands and records of significant achievements. Each are well recognised providers of excellent service for residents and their families, and MCT acknowledges the outstanding work of staff and volunteers for more than 60 years and it confirms it will continue traditions.
Chairman of Masonic Care Tasmania, Mr Klaus Zimmermann AM says the quality of care for residents and their families will continue to be central to Masonic Care Tasmania’s work as they develop this new state-wide organisation.
“This is an exciting opportunity in the quest to deliver high quality, customised services to meet the current and future needs of older Tasmanians, their carers and families,” he says.
Offering exceptional opportunities for an innovative service/business model to be developed and delivered, MCT will provide the foundation for the growth of existing and the development of new services and associated facilities, infrastructure and technologies.
Masonic Care Tasmania is governed by a Board of Directors chaired by Mr Klaus Zimmermann, supported by Board Directors; Mr Paul Chatterton (Deputy Chair), Mr Michael Farley, Ms Jill Morgan, Mr Paul Hodges, Mr John Kirwan, Dr Jane Fuller, Mr Bill Morgan and Mr Robin Philps.
