Leadership changes at H.J. McFarland Home

Following the resignation of Kim Mauro as administrator at H.J. McFarland Memorial Home, Natasha Williams, Director of Care, will serve as the acting administrator and Linda Boyce will take over as the acting Director of Care during the transition period.

Mauro was new to the position in 2016 following a session of third-party management by Saint Elizabeth Health Care, hired in December 2014, following the termination of two former administrators. An investigation in 2015 by the Ministry of Long Term Care resulted in 20 written notifications, three significant and requiring compliance orders.

Robert McAuley, the County’s Acting Chief Administrative Officer also announced today “that the employment relationship between the County and Rachel Gillman has ended, and she will no longer serve as the Resident Quality Supervisor.” Ulana Orrick will take over as the acting Resident Quality Supervisor during the transition period.

No explanations for the changes were provided by the County.

H. J. McFarland Memorial Home in Picton is an accredited, non-profit, 84-bed long-term care facility operated by the County of Prince Edward.

“We are confident that the Home will continue to run smoothly during this transition, and the needs of the residents remain foremost in our minds,” Mayor Steve Ferguson said.

It was announced in June that the provincial government will transform the home into a modern 160-bed long-term care facility – adding 76 beds and upgrading the 84 current beds to modern design standards. The new home is to be built on four acres of County-owned land adjacent to the existing home. The beds have long been needed since Picton Manor closed in 2012.

    So we now know resident and staff members private information was compromised at the McFarland home.

  2. Gary says:

    Any experienced senior executive coming to the County will demand a lucrative exit package given the firing history (3 of 4 last CAO’s have been released). Our record makes recruitment of experienced senior staff very challenging.

  3. Dennis Fox says:

    Over the past ten years or more, our municipality has lost vertually every senior staff member – this is not the first time our community has been placed in this position. I don’t know where to place the responsibility for this, but this is highly unusual for a municipality to continually lose so many key people. We know that Council has been responsible for several people leaving – but this problem goes beyond just one or two people -there is a systemic problem that needs to be investigated and solved. It does nothing to promote this community in a positivre light for future employees. Could this be the result of too many chefs spoiling the broth?

  4. Argyle says:

    Must be a tough place to work, sure seems that someone or something is driving all these changes…….

  5. Gary says:

    So no CAO, no Commisioner of Corprote Services, no Director of Community Development, no Operations Manager, no Director of McFarland Home. That’s a lot of hiring!
