The President and CEO of West Nipissing General Hospital (WNGH) is calling it a career at the end of the year.
Cynthia Desormiers has announced plans to retire on December 31.
She has served 14 years in the top leadership position with 34 years at the hospital.
Desormiers says her position as President and CEO has been one of her greatest privileges.
Janet Parsons, board chair, says Desormiers has devoted her entire career to healthcare at West Nipissing General, noting they’re very fortunate that she decided to return to her hometown to practice nursing, culminating with the hospital’s top job.
“A steadfast and strategic leader, Cynthia Desormiers has guided WNGH through a global pandemic, years of severe provincial budget restraints and championing of the CT scanner project,” said Parsons. “All of us on the Board of Directors are sincerely grateful for her exceptional dedication to WNGH and wish her all the best in her retirement.”
The hospital board will now begin working with an executive search team to select the next President and CEO.
