Reflections on my first month

April 2018

A message from Dr. Tim Rutledge, President and Chief Executive Officer

I’ve been with our new network for almost a month now, and I knew coming in that I was joining a union of three admirable organizations. That said, the collegiality, positive energy and commitment to excellence in care has been beyond my expectations.

My first few weeks have been nothing short of exhilarating and awe-inspiring! As I’ve been making my way around to meet many of you across the network, I’ve been gaining a deeper understanding and appreciation of everything our organization does, and I am proud and honoured to be a part of such an amazing combination of teams.

I’ve learned that you are genuinely committed to our patients and to carrying on the legacy of the Sisters of St. Joseph in caring for all those who enter our doors. You care about what happens within your own area and also within the broader network, and you are committed to continually finding ways to improve care for our patients and their families.
