Top Doc Saying Goodbye To South Shore Health

The CEO for South Shore Health says it's an emotional week as he wraps up his time at the position. Dr. Peter Vaughan spent almost two years as CEO. He is moving on to be the province's deputy minister of health, wellness and seniors next Monday. Vaughan says he enjoyed his time at the helm and feels South Shore Health is well-positioned for the future.

He points to collaborative health centres in Lunenburg, Bridgewater, New Germany, Caledonia and another in the works for Liverpool as good foundations. Vaughan says he would have liked to see more work done on redeveloping the emergency rooms in Bridgewater and Lunenburg. A replacement CEO has not been named.
