A familiar face will be returning to Haliburton Highlands Health Services.
Foster Loucks, who retired from the position of CEO in 2002, has been named interim CEO of the corporation until a replacement for Paul Rosebush can be found.
On Aug. 3, Loucks was introduced to some of the staff of the corporation by board chairman Len Logozar and Rosebush at the Haliburton Hospital.
Logozar said Haliburton was fortunate to have Loucks in the community.
After leaving HHHS 10 years ago, Loucks became chairman of the Central East Local Health Integration Network, which encompasses hospitals from Scarborough up to Haliburton including Peterborough and Lindsay.
He retired from that position about a year ago.
Loucks said he will “keep the ship on course” in the months between Rosebush’s departure and a new CEO’s arrival.
He starts Sept. 4 and will finish his term Dec. 31.
A search firm has been retained by the corporation to find a replacement for Rosebush.
