Ethan Parsa

Managing Director

Details

Ethan is an engineer, project manager and entrepreneur. As the founding director, the Medical Centre was a brainchild of his in the making, long before construction broke ground at Glengowrie.

Ethan believes that innovation combined with patient centricity is the key to a much needed ‘refined healthcare’ system. In addition to the clinic establishment, he is responsible for the medical centre’s ongoing operational management and business development.

When Ethan is not at the GMC he is managing other business interests and serving up some aces on the tennis court.
