Ross grew up in the outer suburbs of Melbourne. In primary school, his teacher asked the class what everyone wanted to be when they grow up. Out of nowhere, Ross didn’t know why, instinctively said he wanted to be a doctor. Everyone in the class burst out laughing, including the teacher.
Ross now co-founded Ochre Health which has 31 individual Medical Centres that provide medical services to communities across various states and territories of Australia including the Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania, and employs over 200 doctors all around the country.
Ross has walked the Kokoda Track twice, written a book, took his family travelled around Europe for three months. A lover of sports, music, adventure and life. Makes amazing desserts for friends and beautiful furniture pieces in his spare time.
Come along for pizzas and beer and listen to Ross share Insights on Decision-making and the journey of Ochre Health - How he studied four years in medicine at University of Melbourne; quit and worked in a factory in Albury; finished Medicine; Internship and Basic Surgical Training in Hobart; quit again and set up a Turkish restaurant which he ran for three years; resumed medicine as a rural GP on Palm Island; did a 12-week crash course in Anaesthetics; went to Bourke as a GP Anaesthetist for nearly 10 years; set up Ochre Health with a colleague in 2002, which now runs over 30 medical centres, a recruitment business and employs 400 staff.
