Residential Manager

Professional Bio

Peter Armstrong is a health professional of 23 year's experience, specialising in aged care, remote area and resource industry health care.

Based in Sydney, Australia, he is a 10 year veteran of providing front line health care services to some of the world's most geographically isolated communities, for both government and non-government (commercial and not-for-profit) organisations.

Having previously worked in the field of critical care (emergency, coronary care, high dependency, and intensive care), Peter gained experience in transport nursing prior to making the transition into remote area and resource industry health care. He has extensive experience in the operational management of health centres, and from a health practitioner perspective was often the most senior clinician onsite. Since returning to Sydney to live full time, he has moved in to the aged care sector, specialising in providing care for the homeless, and those at risk of homelessness due to their circumstances, having managed a 60 bed 100% concessional low-level care facility in Surry Hills for Mission Australia and is currently managing a 42 bed 100% concessional high-level care facility in Darlinghurst for HammondCare. He is also currently a Non-Executive Director of Roseneath Aged Care Centre in Glen Innes.

He was briefly contracted to the Australian Government's Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission as a Senior Quality Surveyor.

Peter has taught casually with the School of Indigenous Australian Studies at James Cook University, and is a two time winner of Randstad's (Australia) "Nurse of the Month" award.

Peter earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Western Sydney, and has undertaken post graduate studies through the University of Southern Queensland.

He is a Justice of the Peace in and for the State of New South Wales.
