After careful consideration, the Board of Directors of the South West LHIN, has determined that new leadership direction is warranted, and as a result, Michael Barrett is no longer with the organization.

“On behalf of the Board of Directors I would like to thank Mr. Barrett for his ten years of service to the organization,” said Andrew Chunilall, Acting Board Chair. “We wish him all the best in his future.”

“It has been my pleasure serving the people of Southwestern Ontario, and I want to wish the LHIN, and all of its hard-working staff, well moving into the future” said Michael Barrett

The Board will immediately begin a search for a new CEO. Kelly Gillis, Vice President of Strategy, System Design and Integration and Donna Ladouceur, Vice President of Home and Community Care will assume the role of Interim Co-CEO. Under their stewardship, the South West LHIN will continue to provide patient-centred care to the people we serve and work closely with nearly 200 health service providers and partners to ensure the best and most effective health care system for the region.
