Meeting, May 16, 2022: Hear from our Hospital CEO

Join us Monday, May 16 for a live presentation about the vision for our local Perth hospital. It is a pleasure and a privilege to have Michael Cohen, CEO and President of Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital (PSFDH) and Margot Hallam, Executive Director, PSFDH Foundation as the guest speakers at our May 16 General Meeting.

Michael was appointed to his position effective November 2, 2021 following 3 years as President and CEO of the Glengarry Memorial Hospital located in Alexandria, Ontario. Prior to that, he held a number of senior leadership positions at Queensway Carleton Hospital including vice president of clinical services. With his understanding of the role that rural hospitals play in the community, he continues to build on the solid foundation already in place at the PSFDH.

"People need care close to home." This is the sentiment expressed by Margot Hallam in her position as Executive Director of the PSFDH Foundation. Margot's leadership in promoting and raising public awareness of the PSFDH Foundation ensures that the funds needed within the hospital are raised and used to keep quality care in the community. Margot has been Executive Director since its establishment in February, 2021 with the amalgamation of the Great War Memorial Hospital Foundation and the Smiths Falls Community Hospital Foundation.

Mr. Cohen and Ms. Hallam will give us insight into the hospital’s vision and strategic plan, what

services are available and the personalized approach taken in delivering these services. We will also learn about some of the major projects and purchases that have been funded by the Foundation and how it works together with the community to raise and steward funds for projects and services for health care at the PSHDH.

Please join us on May 16 to learn more about the PSFDH from these dedicated and knowledgeable community leaders. The meeting will be a hybrid of Zoom and in-person (at the Perth Legion, 26 Beckwith St. E.). It is open to the general public.
