VIHA CEO announces retirement

The president and CEO of the Vancouver Island Health Authority announced this week that he will retire from his role in April 2013.

After eight years, Howard Waldner advised the VIHA board chair, Don Hubbard of his decision to move on from the position.

According to Hubbard, Waldner leaves a proud legacy at VIHA, having developed a strong leadership team and a record of innovation and achievement.

He was the driving force behind the creation of the Royal Jubilee Patient Care Centre and the new North Island Hospitals Project.

Under his leadership, VIHA was recognized as one of Canada’s Top 100 employers during the past four years and delivered a balanced operating budget each year since 2004.

The VIHA board is moving forward to establish a recruitment process to replace Waldner.
