The Haliburton Highlands Health Services has appointed Carolyn Plummer as the new president and CEO.

This comes after the corporation’s board of directors fired the former chief executive officer in December 2015.

Plummer says she is delighted to take on the role.

She says she’s looking forward to work collaboratively with the board, staff, and the community.

Chair of the Board Dave Bonham says he’s confident Plummer is the best candidate.

Plummer has been serving as Interim President and CEO since December 2015.
