Over the next several weeks, we’ll be celebrating those who received South Island MSA Recognition Awards at this year’s Annual General Meeting.
The award for Communications Leadership goes to someone who has facilitated effective communication between the medical staff, administration, and the Board of Directors of Island Health. As nominated by Dr. Tia Pham and Dr. Paul Sawchuk, we are delighted to recognize Dr. Leah MacDonald.
As Executive Medical Director of Primary Care and Seniors Health, Dr. MacDonald excels in her role of integrating primary care needs, services, and voices into Island Health work. She is responsive to community physicians’ concerns and goes beyond the call of duty to make system connections fast and efficiently. As a big picture visionary, she removes barriers, advocates for primary care, and brings a solution-focused mind to challenges, all with a kind smile and often with exceptional baked goods.
Dr. MacDonald is a true role model.
Warm congratulations to Dr. Leah MacDonald as the recipient for the Award for Communications Leadership.
