Paul Rosebush begins work as President and CEO of South Bruce Grey Health Centre.
After a long six month search, the South Bruce Grey Health Centre has a new President and CEO at work.
Paul Rosebush begin his new role last month.
He is now responsible for four hospitals in Kincardine, Walkerton, Chesley and Durham and the programs at those sites.
Rosebush feels health care in small rural communities is the most important part of community.
One of the top priorities for the new CEO is to build a strong community healthcare network.
He also wants to connect more with community service providers and look at partnerships.
Rosebush has a strong background in rural health care. He has served as President and CEO of Haliburton Highlands Health Services and in the Northwest Territories.
Rosebush says he has talked with the South West LHIN and feels the LHIN's are the best way to fund healthcare in Ontario.
Rosebush admits bigger hospitals such as those in London get more attention than rural hospitals, but he feels they all have the same health care needs.
Rosebush says he wants to change funding for local health care since the South Bruce Grey Health Centre has four hospitals but they are treated as one facility.
