In Local

By Cecilia Nasmith/Today’s Northumberland
Following more than seven years in the leadership role of Northumberland Hills Hospital, President and Chief Executive Officer Linda Davis has notified the NHH board of directors of her intention to retire later this year.

Davis will remain in the position until her successor is identified, with the goal of retiring by August 1.

The board is sorry to receive the news, chair Pam Went said in the press release.

“But Linda Davis is concluding her career at NHH with achievements that stand us in very good stead for the future ahead: financial stability, enhanced services to better meet the needs of our growing and diverse population, strategic capital improvements, strong community collaboration through the Ontario Health Team of Northumberland – an innovative model of care delivery Linda has championed from the start – and a culture of teamwork that is inclusive of both health-care providers and the patients and families we serve.

“The NHH board appreciates that retirement was a decision Linda deferred for some time due to the unforeseen circumstances of COVID, and we support her wholeheartedly as she looks forward to the opportunity this summer, when the worst of COVID is hopefully behind us, to spend well-earned time with her family.

“Linda has been an exceptional leader for NHH. We are grateful for the expertise she brought to this critical role, the vision she has had for continuously building on the rich history of this exceptional community hospital, and the tireless dedication she has brought to the role of President and CEO each and every day,” Went said.

“Skilled leadership is essential to ensure NHH continues to deliver on its commitment of exceptional patient care, every time. A recruitment committee is being struck, and the board will be initiating its search for the next President and CEO of NHH in the coming weeks.”
