Two roles for new head My girl: Brad Clark, the new chief executive at Starship Foundation, is also settling into his role as father to Kaitlin. Photo: BEN WATSON By SARAH CODDINGTON Little Kaitlin has only been in this world for 12 weeks but she's already inspired her father to take on a new job. Brad Clark is the new Starship Foundation chief executive. He saw the job advertised and knew he had to apply for it. And his first child with his wife Nicky was one of the major factors in applying. You walk through the Paediatric Intensive Care unit and your heart just melts, seeing these little babies hooked up to every tube imaginable. Your heart goes out to the parents. If anything happened to little Kaitlin I would know she had the best care,'' he says.. He hopes he can help keep New Zealand's biggest children's hos- pital moving forward in the right direction to provide top care for its patients. One of his biggest projects will be fundraising for the level six ward for neurosurgery and neuro- logical disorders. More than 2000 young patients are admitted to the ward each year. While the medical care of these patient is being met, overall care is at a basic level and the full needs of the children in this ward are not being met. This is due to poor configuration of the beds and services within the ward. Hospitals around the world are moving towards a new era of medical treatment which looks to address both medical, social and emotional needs of the patients. Mr Clark comes from a market- ing and promotions background and until recently he was the gen- eral manager at CanTeen, an organisation that supports young people living with cancer. He has also worked for the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind. Go to www.starship. org.nz/donation to donate to the level six rebuild project.
