Stephanie MacLaren

Stephanie MacLaren

Stephanie MacLaren is to join the Prince Edward Family Health Team in July as its new executive director.

MacLaren brings experience as a leader in primary healthcare, and a strong background and passion for community health and development.

Most recently she has held the role of Interim E.D. at the South East Toronto Family Health Team which honed her appreciation of the role of primary care in creating a system of integrated person-centred care and affirmed the importance of strong community partnerships in realizing this potential.

She has held posts as the Regional Director for the Toronto Central LHIN Diabetes Regional Coordination Centre, DEC NET Program Manager at the South Riverdale Community Health Centre, and as the community Development and Research Coordinator at Toronto East General Hospital.

She holds a Masters degree in Environmental Studies with a particular interest in systems theory.

MacLaren is originally from Nova Scotia, and told the PEFHT she is delighted to find such a great job that allows her to get back to her rural roots.

    Have you ever noticed that it always starts small, then just grows and grows? I think they call it empire building and these folks hired keep it running smoothly always come at a high price.

    ” Now it takes an executive to keep it running. ”

    For sure. It’s a long list of duties…that you and I don’t see very much of….Everything from hiring, payroll, building(s) maintenance, banking, purchasing, completing reports, etc. … all of which makes life simpler and better for the clinicians and you and I. Every great team has to have people behind the scenes.

    Interesting. When my family physician first explained the Health Team concept to me it sounded both practical and simple. I signed a form consenting to have my health records made available to whatever doctor might treat me in an emergency. It was a matter of efficiency. Now it takes an executive to keep it running.

    She will be taking over the job vacated by Duff Sprague… doing all the ‘administrative’ work at the Family Health Team while our doctors, nurses, nurse practitioners, dieticians, etc. look after us. 🙂

    Our hospital is being reduced to a first-aid station and our doctors are starting to leave. Why has yet another executive position been created? What is it exactly that this person will do?
