We are implementing some changes at the Senior Management Team, effective Thursday, April 1, 2010.
The purpose of these changes is to better align portfolios with the evolving needs of our hospital, our corporate objectives and enhance the strong leadership skill set of our team.
Natalie Bubela will now have the title of Vice-President Regional Programs, Program Integration and Chief Nursing Executive (CNE). As CNE Natalie will have responsibility for the ongoing development and improvement of nursing and allied health professional practice. As VP Integration, she will be responsible for advancing RVHS’ participation in the implementation of the Central East LHIN Clinical Services Plan as well as the development of new program integration and program development opportunities. As VP Regional Programs, Natalie will have ongoing operational leadership for the Cardiac, Cancer and Women’s and Children’s programs.
Sonia Peczeniuk will continue as Vice-President Clinical Support, but will also take on responsibility for the Surgical Program. She will relinquish her role as VP Medical Affairs when our new Chief of Staff starts, likely towards the end of May.
Michele Jordan will be Vice-President Quality Improvement and Transformation. Michele will continue to lead transformation and the deployment of Lean organization wide. She will also take on the role as leading the improvement of quality organization wide. This will include clinical quality, customer service and safety. Michele will also work with me to develop the next iteration of our Strategic Plan on a Page.
John Aldis will continue as Vice-President Corporate Services, but will also take on responsibility for Post Acute Care.
I would also like to welcome Cheryl Williams to the Senior Management Team as Vice-President Acute Care Services. Cheryl will have responsibility for Emergency, Medicine and Critical Care, Mental Health and Patient Flow.
There are no immediate changes to the responsibilities of Darrell Sewell, Rick Gowrie or Dave Brazeau. Dr. Naresh Mohan and Dr. Romas Stas will continue in their roles as key members of the Senior Management Team.
I ask you all to continue to support our new leadership structure and I wish each of our VPs great success in their new roles and responsibilities.
President and CEO
