Significant course correction for Fronditha Care as it paves the way forward


Just over three weeks from taking the reins at Fronditha Care, CEO Faye Spiteri Tsolakis, has made vital inroads in recalibrating the organisation, with a focus on ensuring sustainability and an eye to future growth. In collaboration with the Board of Directors and Executive team, she is progressing a longer-term strategy for framing the way forward to turnaround the business and realign operational plans to sustain success into the future.

Spiteri Tsolakis said: “Fronditha Care is shaping the future of the organisation and its service delivery, securing financial viability and sustainability whilst maintaining the highest standards of clinical care and care oversight.”

Spiteri Tsolakis noted, given the 2019/2020 deficit, it was critical to take immediate action and review the entire organisation’s operations to look for efficiencies. This included a review of workforce costs alongside all other expenditure.

The first stage of the change process began with an organisational restructure at a corporate level. Spiteri Tsolakis said: “This decision was not taken lightly but it was important to review how we function. Importantly, we made a deliberate decision to lessen the impact on service delivery and stayed true to our service promise with no reduction in numbers of staff across community or residential services.”

Spiteri Tsolakis continued: “In consultation with Residential Managers, we reviewed and changed our master rosters across all facilities and adjusted these with regard to each facility.

In concluding remarks, Spiteri Tsolakis said: “Change is sometimes hard to accept but it’s a constant in life and we need to rise to our responsibilities and ensure Fronditha Care gets through this difficult time to become a bigger and better organisation. The Board, Executive and I have accepted the challenges we face head on because we know it is incumbent on us to be the agents of change that will see the organisation thrive once more.

The Board and I want to reassure the community that we will continue to provide the highest standards of clinical care – as that is the reason for our being. We will also continue to support the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff because they are the backbone of Fronditha Care. In tandem, we are reframing our financial performance and have taken this tough course of action now to ensure we are here in service of the community for at least another 44 years.”
