Moving Forward with Ralph Warburton

Greengate is delighted to announce the appointment of Ralph Warburton as our new CEO. With over 12 years’ experience supporting the transformation of aged care, Ralph is passionate about improving the quality and supply of care communities for Australian seniors. This makes Ralph the perfect fit for Greengate and our continued growth after launching two new villages, St Patrick’s Green in Kogarah and St Luke’s Green in Woolloongabba, last year. 

Ralph stated ‘I’m committed to a sustainable growth model, we need to build more villages to meet the significant upcoming undersupply of aged care and retirement homes in our community.’ Bringing with him a wealth of knowledge from his previous role as CFO of Catholic Healthcare, Ralph Warburton is determined to maintain and improve upon Greengate’s reputation as both creators and providers of comfortable and supportive seniors communities. Greengate’s vision is to expand our service offering and create further new care villages, with both retirement and aged care integrated in the one location, around Australia.
 
‘I hope that Greengate can provide a great working environment that each of our team members are proud to talk about with their friends and families, and in turn, so too will our residents. After all, our residents don’t live where we work, we are fortunate to work each day in their homes’ said Ralph. Greengate will continue to support our retirement and aged care residents in living life to the full, on their own terms and at their own pace. 
 
Moving forward, Greengate’s focus will be on bettering our person-centred care and wellness model. Particular attention will be paid to training and supporting our great team of carers so they can go the extra step when caring for our residents in times of need. By empowering our team members to make more of their own decisions about how to best help our residents, they’ll be better able to assist our residents in keeping their bodies and minds active and engaged.
 
Since starting at Greengate, Ralph has been busy visiting each of our villages in both Sydney (St Brigid’s Green and St Patrick’s Green) and Brisbane (St Luke’s Green) to get to know our residents a little better. When he is not at work, he enjoys spending time with his wife and sons, and is a passionate player and manager of his soccer team.
