“Halton Healthcare has so much to offer,” notes Leroux. “The organization is known for its thriving culture of excellence – one that puts people first and offers a supportive workplace. We need to continue to build on this.”
“I look forward to engaging with our staff, physicians, volunteers and communities to further nurture a culture that fosters inclusion and supports our peoples’ growth and well-being. These are challenging times for the healthcare sector. We need to be strategic and continuously recognize the contributions of our people.”
