With Allison Twiss’ recent departure as Health Director at the Pqusnalhcw Health Centre, it is our pleasure to advise that Rebecca Abraham will be serving as Acting Health Director during the interim period until a replacement Director is installed. Rebecca has served as the Health Director’s Executive Assistant since 2009 and has demonstrated strong administrative, financial, management and people skills. During this period Rebecca will assume all Health Director responsibilities including the management of our Health Canada and Vancouver Coastal Health contracts, team management, full participation with the Senior Management team and oversight of program delivery. All day to day communications normally handled by Allison are now to be directed to Rebecca.

 We are confident that Rebecca will provide strong leadership in this area during the coming period, and will ensure that the delivery of health services to the community will remain consistent and without interruption to those in need. Please join us in welcoming Rebecca into this challenging role.

The Health Director position has recently been posted with a closing date of November 18th.
