Life Healthcare makes strategic changes to its executive committee


The reconstituted executive committee will see Life Healthcare CFO Pieter van der Westhuizen take responsibility for the information technology and cybersecurity portfolios.

Life Healthcare Group, formerly Afrox Healthcare, and the second largest private hospital operator in South Africa, has made changes to its exco. This comes after the group announced the disposal of the Alliance Medical Group (AMG), which led to Life Healthcare’s exco being combined and reconstituted. The decision was made to consolidate the team’s capabilities and experience to ensure effective delivery of the Life Healthcare strategy.

According to Life Healthcare, Peter Wharton-Hood will continue as CEO. Pieter van der Westhuizen will remain as CFO and assume the responsibility for the IT and cybersecurity portfolios. Adam Pyle moves from the role of chief executive: southern Africa to the new role of chief strategy and growth officer, where he will take responsibility for the critical focus of southern African growth opportunities.

Craig Koekemoer, who previously held the role of business operations executive: South Africa, will take on the new role of chief operations officer. All changes are effective 3 April 2024.
