St. Peter's Health System CEO Steps Down

HAMILTON, ON, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- After the remarkable turnaround of St. Peter's Hospital and the development and growth of St. Peter's Family of Services, CEO Grant Walsh has announced that he is leaving St. Peter's to become CEO of Murphy Walsh Management Group of Washington, DC. "Grant has made a significant contribution to the success of St. Peter's and we are deeply indebted," says Board Chair Sandra Stephenson. "His performance has been outstanding as a turnaround and growth CEO. He saved our hospital from closure, acquired four home health agencies, developed our new long term care facility, strengthened research and education and dramatically raised community awareness of St. Peter's. The Board of Directors and the whole St. Peter's Family of Services want to thank Grant for his effective leadership and wish him continued success for the future."

"It is wonderful to see what we have created here together," says Walsh. "It has been extremely gratifying to be a part of this success story. I leave at a time when St. Peter's is thriving and has become one of the finest service organizations in Ontario. I will certainly miss all of the dedicated employees, volunteers and supporters. After 115 years, the caring continues."

St. Peter's Family of Services now includes St. Peter's Hospital, St. Peter's Residence at Chedoke, St. Peter's Home Services, St. Peter's Centre for Studies in Aging, and St. Peter's Foundation.
