Announcement to staff from Dr. Jack Kitts

Dr. Kitts

Dear all,

Today, you received a note from our Board Chair indicating that I will be retiring as President and CEO of The Ottawa Hospital in June 2020. 

I want you to know it has been a privilege and an honour for me to be part of The Ottawa Hospital team for the past 30 plus years. I joined the medical staff in 1988 and have enjoyed numerous roles prior to becoming President and CEO in October 2001. 

I am grateful for the many opportunities that I’ve had to lead and represent the hospital in our community, provincially and on a national level. I am also grateful to have worked with so many amazing staff members, from administrators and managers to physicians, nurses, other health professionals, support staff and volunteers. Because of you, The Ottawa Hospital is well positioned for the future.

Soon, the Board of Governors will conduct a search to find the next President and CEO, and I have committed to work with them to ensure a smooth transition. 

I look forward to working with you in making 2019/2020 another great year for our hospital.
