The President and CEO of Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare, Janice Kaffer, has announced her plan to retire no later than March 31, 2022. Kaffer has held the role for seven years.

“I will be ever grateful to have had the opportunity to lead the team here at HDGH over the past seven years as CEO. I have grown as a person, as a leader and as a friend because of the relationships I’ve built and the work I’ve been blessed to be able to do. I look forward to not being a full-time leader and instead perhaps find new and creative ways to serve our community in the future on a more relaxed basis,” said Kaffer.

Immediately following her notice to the board on September 29, 2021, Kaffer and the Board of Directors reviewed and deliberated the already developed CEO succession plan.

“As such, it is with absolute pleasure and great confidence that I announce that Bill Marra has accepted the role of President and CEO beginning no later than April 1, 2022,” said Hospital Board Chair Brian Payne.

Marra has been with the organization for over ten years, and has been a member of the executive team for seven years and played a vital role in assisting in the COVID-19 response.

“I feel humbled and honoured to be offered this tremendous opportunity to work with and lead an organization that I care for very deeply” states Marra. “I look forward to continuing my working relationship with Janice as we transition responsibilities over the next few months. As I reflect on my time as an employee in my teens, as a board member 20 years ago, and now in the role that I have accepted, I feel absolutely blessed, and I look forward to working with our entire HDGH and our partners across Windsor-Essex as we continue the legacy and mission of our founders.”
