The Chatham-Kent Health Alliance has announced, as of today, CEO Colin Patey will no longer be with the organization.
This is the first major public move Rob Devitt has made since the Ministry of Health appointed him as Supervisor of the Alliance.
Officials have appointed Ken Deane as Interim Chief Executive Officer.
His most recent position was as Interim Chief Executive Officer at the Leamington District Memorial Hospital.
Deane joins the organization with experience as Chief Executive Officer at the Hotel Dieu Grace in Windsor and St. Joseph's Health Centre in Toronto. Deane also served as an Assistant Deputy Minister at the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
Blackburnnews.com has reached out to CKHA officials, who say they will not be commenting on the change in personnel.
