Erie Shores HealthCare has started a search for a new CEO following an announcement of the departure of CEO Janice Dawson.

Hospital officials announced Tuesday that Dawson would be leaving the role to “pursue other professional interests” after serving in the position for three years.

“Our board and community are tremendously grateful to Janice for her hard work and leadership over the last three years,” said Erie Shores HealthCare board chair Jeff Lewis. “We extend our sincere appreciation and our best wishes as she begins the next chapter of her career.”

Officials say under Dawson’s leadership, Leamington’s hospital has been playing an integral role in managing the crisis of COVID19, and now ranks as one of Ontario’s top five hospitals for short emergency wait times.

The hospital’s Chief of Staff, Dr. Ross Moncur, will take over as interim CEO, officials said.

“Dr. Moncur has the full trust, confidence, and support of the Erie Shores HealthCare board of directors as he steps into this new role,” said Lewis. “Having such a strong chief of staff – and now interim CEO – engaged in this process will give the board terrific insight into the opportunities and needs that lay ahead.”

Lewis announced the hospital has launched an independent executive search for the hospital’s next leader.
