Lakeridge Health’s board of trustees has found itself a new chair.
Valentine Lovekin, who is a lawyer in Newcastle and Toronto specializing in real estate transactions, land use planning, estates administration and elder law, was named as the board’s new chair following its annual general meeting.
Lovekin is no stranger to the board, having joined in 2009, most recently serving as first vice chair, as well as chair of the board’s governance committee.
“It’s a great honour to be chosen to serve our community as chair of the board,” Lovekin states in a news release.
“I look forward to working with my fellow board members and the leadership of our hospital to drive our ambitious strategic plan as, together, we create better health care, closer to home.”
