July 13, 2010

Mississauga/West Toronto (FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE) – Janet Davidson, O.C. and Michelle DiEmanuele, presidents and CEOs of Trillium Health Centre and The Credit Valley Hospital respectively, are pleased to announce the appointment of Morag McLean as shared vice-president, people services and organizational effectiveness.

McLean is strongly committed to leadership, learning, innovation, diversity, inclusiveness and employee engagement. Over the years, with progressive roles and increasing scope of responsibility, McLean has demonstrated great success in leading and managing strategic, cultural and system change across large complex public service environments.
McLean has held a variety of senior level positions in the Ontario Public Service including in the Ministry of the Solicitor General, Management Board Secretariat, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, Cabinet Office, and the Ministry of Government Services. In her former role as Assistant Deputy Minister, Centre for Leadership and Learning, McLean was responsible for fostering an enterprise-wide leadership and management culture.

About Shared Roles

Finding innovative ways to create a sustainable and supportive health care environment for our patients and families, Trillium and Credit Valley have already begun the complex task of aligning, and where appropriate, integrating services to create a consistent standard of care, expediting the delivery of care and creating centres of excellence for our patients while, at the same time, doing our best to curb escalating health care costs.

“Although we are two separate organizations, we have always worked together to provide our Mississauga and South Etobicoke communities with the best care,” says Davidson. “That's why we are doing what we can to align and integrate our services where appropriate.”

One area in which the partnership between Trillium and Credit Valley is unfolding is through shared administrative roles. The two already share a chief information officer and now share a vice president of people services and organizational effectiveness, as well as shared director positions in strategic planning, ethics, pharmacy, diagnostic imaging and laboratory services.
