In honour of Robin Syme AM
Robin Syme was a major contributor to aged care in Australia, particularly for his support and guidance to mecwacare. Robin was a solicitor with over 40 years’ experience in the not-for-profit sector. This former president of The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, Chairman of the State Council and President of St John Ambulance Victoria joined the mecwacare Board in 2000. Soon after, he was appointed as the organisation’s Chairman.
Within this role, Robin supported the expansion and enhancement of mecwacare’s residential and community services, including the refurbishment of our Fisher Street and Barry Fenton day centres. Over a 10-year period, he was involved in the extension of mecwacare’s Sir Donald and Lady Trescowthick Centre in Prahran and the Pakenham home care office, and opened mecwacare’s Malvern Centre, a 101-bed aged care facility right next door to this new collection of luxurious residences.
