Paul Ramsay AO

2 May 2014: Paul Ramsay AO, Chairman, founder and major shareholder of Ramsay Health Care, passed away overnight in his home town of Bowral, after recently suffering a heart attack.

An Australian entrepreneur, Mr Ramsay is known for his establishment of private hospitals; expanding regional television services; property development; and as a major benefactor to a range of educational, cultural, artistic and sporting organisations.

This year was the 50th anniversary of the opening of Paul’s first private hospital in Sydney, Australia. From these early beginnings, he went on to establish Ramsay Health Care, which is today, not only the largest private hospital group in Australia, but a global hospital group with 151 hospitals across the world, employing over 30,000 staff and treating over 1.4 million patients each year.
