Ottawa, ON

Integrated Vice President, Patient & Resident Services/ Chief Nursing Executive

Almonte General Hospital and Carleton Place & District Memorial Hospital created the Mississippi River Health Alliance (MRHA) in 2016 to formalize their commitment to work together to improve each patient and resident’s overall health care experience through a strong, coordinated system of care. Each hospital remains a separate corporation with its own Board of Directors and Foundation. An integrated Senior Team leads the two Hospitals, as well as Fairview Manor and Lanark County Paramedic Service which are operating divisions of AGH. Over 600 caring staff, physicians and midwives provide excellent primary, acute and long term care to citizens of Lanark County, West Ottawa and Renfrew County.

Supporting the aims of the MRHA, the Integrated VP PRS/CNE is responsible for planning, directing and coordinating patient and resident care in the acute hospitals and long term care home. Implementation of a new Clinical Services Plan, with a focus on inter-professional care, will be a key responsibility in the short and medium term. As CNE, the VP ensures a culture of safe, high quality patient/resident and family –centered care, fosters the growth of nursing leadership and advances nursing practice. A senior leader who demonstrates our mission, vision and values, the VP PRS/CNE is an ex-officio member of the hospitals Boards of Directors and represents the MRHA locally, regionally and provincially.
