Ronald Lirette will join the Prince Edward Family Health Team as Executive Director starting Feb. 22.

Lirette was executive director at St. Michael’s Homes and at Perram House residential hospice and Dorothy Ley Hospice, all in the Toronto area and has held several senior leadership roles for a number of community-based agencies.

“In these roles, he has built consensus with a variety of internal and external stakeholders, while enhancing access and service quality,” said Dr. Helen Cluett, PEFHT family physician and Board President. “He has an extensive background working in the fields of health promotion, prevention, education and support, specifically within the palliative care, addictions and mental health sectors.

“We are excited to welcome Ron as our new ED. His experience, values and working style are a good fit with our organization and we look forward to working with him as we continue to meet the challenges and opportunities facing the PEFHT in the future,” said Cluett.

Lirette says he loves living in rural communities and is excited about being part of a community-focused organization with a record of achievement in rural health care.

“I am very pleased to be joining the Prince Edward Family Health Team,” said Lirette. “I look forward to serving this community.”

The PEFHT recruitment committee, consisting of a variety of participants including physicians, staff, and a community board representative, undertook a very thorough recruitment process involving several levels of interviews and reference checks prior to making their selection.

“I’d like to thank Richard Christie, who has served as Interim Executive Director for the last three months. His support to the FHT board, staff and patients has been most helpful,” said Cluett.

The Prince Edward Family Health Team is a community catalyst for rural health care and services and provides a single point of access to a broad range of health care services. Twenty-one County family physicians and their office staff, plus clinical and administrative staff of the PEFHT form the team and are affiliated with a number of specialists and work closely with community service provider organizations.

In 2016, the team celebrates 10 years providing care to County residents.
