Richard Lizzio, a Seasoned Hospital Executive, Appointed New Executive Manager of GenesisCare

Richard Lizzio joins GenesisCare with 20 years of experience across hospitals and healthcare, having held senior operational and leadership roles within St Vincent’s Health Australia, Uniting Care, Healthscope and Ramsay Health Care.

Richard Lizzio joins at an exciting time of rapid growth and expansion for GenesisCare in Australia. GenesisCare has been implementing a national integrated cancer care program to combat disrupted care pathways caused by COVID-19. GenesisCare recently opened three new world-class integrated cancer centres in areas of high unmet need and acquired the largest medical oncology provider in South Australia, Adelaide Oncology & Haematology.

GenesisCare’s Global Chief Operating Officer, Michael O’Sullivan, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Richard as GenesisCare’s new Oncology Australia Executive Manager. Richard has a wealth of experience in healthcare, and an impressive track record of re-imagining next-generation business models to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients. He will play a key role as we enter an exciting new stage of growth and development in our business.”

Richard began his career in healthcare at Ramsay Health Care, working for eight years in various hospital CEO positions in Queensland, later joining Healthscope to manage nine of its private hospitals. Since then, Richard has held several leadership roles at UnitingCare Queensland, Icon Group, and St Vincent’s Health Australia.

Newly appointed Executive Manager for Oncology Australia, Richard Lizzio, said: “I have had the great pleasure of working closely with GenesisCare’s clinicians and executive team in my previous roles and have seen first-hand the innovative, world-class care they provide to cancer patients.

“I am truly excited by the opportunity this role brings. I look forward to leading GenesisCare’s Australian business as we scale our integrated cancer care program, expand our medical oncology and theranostics portfolio, and embark on new partnerships with other leading healthcare providers.

“GenesisCare’s continued growth and investment in new centres, technology, and partnerships is founded on the company’s core belief that patients should have access to great care that achieves the best possible outcomes, close to home,” said Mr Lizzio.

In his new role, Richard will guide the expansion of GenesisCare’s integrated cancer treatment centres across Australia and will drive several new hospital partnerships. In the past six months, GenesisCare has opened three new integrated centres – GenesisCare North Shore (NSW), GenesisCare Maitland (NSW), and GenesisCare Murdoch (WA) – with Norwest Sydney (NSW) currently nearing completion.

Over the next two years, GenesisCare has a strong pipeline of new centre openings including Campbelltown (NSW), Frenches Forest (NSW) and two centres in Adelaide (SA).

Mr. Lizzio will also work in close partnership with GenesisCare’s new Chief Medical Officer, Dr Marie Burke, OAM. Dr Burke is a highly regarded radiation oncologist with more than 30 years’ experience, including a decade at GenesisCare. She was recognised for her service to medicine and the community in the 2022 Australia Day Honours list.
