New Volunteers Join Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Boards of Directors - Public General Hospital and St. Joseph’s Health Services Association

CHATHAM-KENT: June 24, 2014 -- At the June 24th Annual General Meetings of Public General 

and St. Joseph’s Hospitals, volunteer Boards were appointed as follows:

Public General Hospital St. Joseph’s Health Services Association of Chatham

Jane Havens (Vice Chair) Suzie Aarssen

Allan Klinck Mark Isherwood

Jim Laforet Liz Meidlinger (Vice Chair)

In an effort to align with recognized governance best practices, CKHA’s Board of Directors has 

reduced the number of Directors from seven to five and eliminated the position of community 

representatives. These changes reflect by-law changes approved by the Boards at today’s

annual general meetings.

The following are members of the Tri-Board in an ex-officio capacity by virtue of their offices: 

Ruth Caperchione, President of Medical Staff

Dr. Ranjith Chandrasena, Interim Chief of Staff

Willi Kirenko, Vice President, Chief Nursing Executive

Colin Patey, President & CEO
