CEO among guest speakers at University of Ottawa celebration
On May 3, 2014, the Telfer School of Management and the Telfer MHA Alumni Association held a gala at the Château Laurier to highlight the 50th anniversary of the Master of Health Administration (MHA) program.
The Gala was host to some of the elite in health care management and policy in Canada. More than 300 alumni, professors, preceptors, professionals, and members of the community were present, representing 39 of the 50 years of the program.
“I have been extremely privileged to be part of this health care system and like many graduates, it all started for me with this MHA program,” said Cameron Love, MHA 1997. “I will always remember my times as a student and resident. During the first 50 years, the program has seen many great moments and has resulted in many great leaders in our health care system and I am sure it will continue to strengthen and evolve to be a key health leader training program over the next 50.”

Congratulations for patient recognition and ‘high performer’ status
This note from the North East Local Health Integration Network was recently received by CEO Donald Sanderson. A story about the National Research Corporation Canada (NRCC) report appeared in last week’s News Centre.
I was reviewing the 2012-2013 NRCC Patient Ratings Report and I see that WPSHC has reached the “high performer” status as a community hospital.
This is no small feat and one to be recognized. It must be extremely rewarding to know that patients have responded positively to this survey.
No doubt the community is most pleased with the overall care and compassion of which services are delivered at WPSHC.
Please share this recognition with your Board and the staff of your organization.

May is Community Living Month
Many Community Living associations are enthusiastically organizing activities to mark the month of May, celebrated as Community Living Month across Ontario. The month is a time when Ontarians celebrate the accomplishments of people who have an intellectual disability and recognize the work of individuals, families and partners dedicated to building an inclusive community.
“We are definitely looking forward to May, and not only for improved weather but also for Community Living Month,” says Jo-Anne Demick, Executive Director of Community Living Parry Sound. “The theme of this year’s activities is employment since we are also celebrating the launch of the Ready, Willing and Able national initiative.”
• Symbolic of the act of raising awareness, there will be a Community Living flag raising by Parry Sound Mayor Jamie McGarvey on May 7.
• Breakfast with the Mayor, a town favourite, will take place at Wellington’s Pub & Grill on May 14. This year, it will feature guest speaker Michael Bach from the Canadian Association for Community Living.
• Next will be the Festival of the Sound community fund-raiser on May 18 at the Bobby Orr Community Centre.
• The rest of the events will include the annual golf tournament fund-raiser on May 22 at the Rocky Crest Golf Club, and an open house with Community Living Parry Sound’s autism services partner on May 24 to promote the association’s children’s services.
These events bring much goodwill to communities. They offer both a pleasant way to spend a day and an opportunity to raise awareness about issues of inclusion.
By gathering in public places and engaging in sincere interactions with one another, community members not only illustrate an exemplary inclusive community, but also show how natural such a community is, and how easily it can be achieved.
