Following an extensive search throughout the summer and fall, the North East Local Health Integration Network (NE LHIN) is pleased to announce that Jérémy Stevenson will be the new NE LHIN CEO effective January 22, 2018.


For the past three years, Jérémy has been President and CEO of the Hôpital de Mattawa Hospital and Administrator of Algonquin Nursing Home. He is fluently bilingual and an experienced results-oriented healthcare leader with demonstrated vision and people-focussed skills.  Throughout his career, he has worked to build a stronger system of care for people, working in partnership with many community and health system stakeholders. He has a reputation as a credible, inclusive and strategic leader who is focussed on what people need to live healthy and well. (See biography attached).


Ron Farrell, NE LHIN Chair said, “Jérémy brings strengths and skills to the North East LHIN that will help us continue our transformational work to build an integrated health care system across Northeastern Ontario.  With his leadership, we will remain focused on improving the patient experience and performance of the system.  We were looking for a visionary, a relationship builder, and someone with a strong sensitivity and awareness of the needs of people living in our LHIN region.”


Chair Farrell continued, “I and the Board of the NE LHIN are extremely grateful for the leadership of Kate Fyfe who has been Interim NE LHIN CEO since June 2017.  Kate’s leadership and dedication to the NE LHIN organization over the past six months is commendable.  Kate and her full senior leadership team will be an invaluable resource to our new CEO.”


Jérémy Stevenson stated that, “While it was a difficult decision to leave Hôpital de Mattawa Hospital, I am grateful that in my new role as North East LHIN CEO, I will have the opportunity to work with them and the many valuable partners across our LHIN as we focus on building a more patient-focused and integrated system of care in Northeastern Ontario.  I look forward to leading another organization that is filled with dedicated employees who are working to improve the lives of people and helping to build the best health care system possible.”  Jérémy continued, “I am very honoured to join such a strong senior team, and wish to recognize the tremendous work that our previous CEO Louise Paquette, Interim CEO Kate Fyfe, and the former CCAC CEO, Richard Joly, have done in transforming a patient-focused health system for our people and communities of Northeastern Ontario.”
