Dr. Wassim Saad is the new Chief of Staff at Windsor Regional Hospital.

“Dr. Saad brings years of experience as a physician, as a leader, as a communicator and a teacher,” said Daniel Wilson, Board Chair, Windsor Regional Hospital. “We are fortunate and excited to have Dr. Saad take on this important position on our leadership team.”

Dr. Saad spent his formative years in Leamington and completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Windsor before completing his medical degree at the University of Ottawa in 2001.

After a few years as Chief Medical Resident at Toronto’s Western Hospital (part of the University Health Network of hospitals) and later Mount Sinai Hospital, Dr. Saad returned to our region to join the internal medicine staff at the former Hotel-Dieu Grace Hospital in 2005.

Most recently, Dr. Saad has been Chief of the Department of Medicine at WRH as well as Academic Director of Postgraduate Medicine for the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry’s Windsor program.

“I often tell students and residents to think of a patient’s course through life and try to intervene to alter that course for the better,” Dr. Saad says in describing his ‘patients first’ philosophy. “These interventions can be as dramatic as a life-saving procedure or as small as a nudge to quit smoking and I always try to change that course for the better.”

Dr. Saad will succeed longtime WRH Chief of Staff Dr. Gary Ing, effective July 22nd. Dr. Ing, who announced in January his decision to retire after 25 years of service, will stay on to complete various projects and to assist Dr. Saad through the transition period until the end of September.

The appointment follows a rigorous process where numerous candidates were contacted during a three-month evaluation period that ended early last month. In total, over 250 potential candidates were considered.
