The health network has announced the hiring of two contractual positions, including a new chief financial officer and a new chief administrative officer. The announcement comes as LHSC Vice President of Finance and Chief Financial Officer Jacquie Davison announced her departure from the organization on Monday.
“Thanking for the opportunity to serve at LHSC over the past year and a half. It was certainly an experience like no other. Beautiful people are doing an amazing job during the pandemic, ”Davison wrote on LinkedIn.
“As I enter a period of recovery, I look forward to the rest! She continued.
LHSC has confirmed that Davison is no longer with LHSC, but has not provided further comments.
The hospital network has appointed Danny Tulip as the new CFO, who has worked for the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority and Royal Roads University.
Bill Manson has been appointed to the new post of Managing Director of Administration. Manson has extensive experience in the health sector in Ontario and returns to LHSC where he previously worked as a pharmacist.
“We welcome Bill Manson and Danny Tulip to the LHSC team,” said Jackie Schleifer Taylor, interim CEO of LHSC in a statement. “Their combined expertise and experience will help guide the organization through the current public health crisis and enable us to effectively support a restoration of post-pandemic health system services. “
The LHSC said the move will allow the organization to better respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, plan for a resumption of services, support the transformation of the provincial health system and collaborate more with regional partners.
The appointment of Tulip and Manson comes the day after Davison’s departure.
Less than two weeks ago, the LHSC confirmed that Neil Johnson, chief operating officer, and Susan Nickle, general council and chief human resources officer, were no longer part of the hospital network.
Former CEO Paul Woods was fired from the LHSC in January following revelations he visited the United States during the pandemic.
Amy Walby, the former chairman of the board, resigned her post shortly after Woods left.
The LHSC responded to the exodus of executives in an open letter to the community on Tuesday.
“We recognize that the recent departures from our executive ranks may have raised concerns in the community and among our stakeholders,” Taylor said in the statement.
“We want to assure you that our dedication to your care remains unwavering and that we are unwavering in our determination to deliver on our commitments and our roadmap to recovery. “
