Interim President and Chief Executive Officer appointed

Ms. Lori Lamont, Vice-President, Interprofessional Practice & Chief Nursing Officer, has been appointed Interim President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority effective Friday May 29, 2015.

Ms. Arlene Wilgosh, current President and CEO of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, announced late last year she was retiring this spring.

"I am pleased to appoint Ms. Lori Lamont as interim President and CEO of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority," said Dr. Jerry Gray, Chair of the Board of Directors.

"Lori has been with the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority for 17 years with the last six years in senior leadership positions. I am confident she will provide the leadership necessary to move the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority forward, and continue the progress we are making in dealing with the challenges facing the region."

The appointment of Ms. Lamont as interim President and CEO will be effective until a permanent President and CEO has been appointed. The Board of Directors is actively recruiting a permanent President and CEO, and this recruitment process continues.
