The chief executive officer of Hôpital Glengarry Memorial Hospital in Alexandria, Linda Morrow, has announced that she will retire at the end of June.

As for a successor, the board of directors "will be engaging in a recruitment process as per the Succession Planning Policy."

"In her 37 years as an employee of HGMH, Linda has held several roles at the hospital, from Registered Nurse to Chief Nursing Officer to CEO.  She has been an integral part of many improvements at HGMH, including the expansion of the Emergency and Ambulatory Care units, implementation of the Post-Acute Stroke Rehabilitation Program, and the addition of many new services such as ultrasound, bone densitometry, cardiac stress testing, cardiac ultrasound, and pulmonary function testing," says chair Bruce Starkauskas.

"On behalf of the board of directors, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Linda for her hard work and dedication to HGMH.  Her departure will be a great loss to the organization, and she will certainly be missed. I am sure you will join me in wishing Linda all the best as she begins the next chapter of her life."
