Headwaters Welcomes New President and CEO Stacey Daub

Headwaters Health Care Centre’s Board welcomed Stacey Daub as its President and CEO on January 30, 2017, following a rigourous national search. Stacey joins Headwaters from her previous role as Chief Executive Officer with Toronto Central Community Care Access Centre. 
The highly-anticipated announcement of a new President and CEO came on the heels of the retirement of former hospital President and CEO Liz Ruegg. 
With extensive experience in health care leadership, Stacey is known for her inclusive style, engaging patients and staff at all levels (front-line to management) in decision-making to build critical partnerships and creating a culture that galvanizes people and organizations. Stacey holds a Master of Arts from the University of Waterloo and a Master of Business Administration from the Richard Ivey School of Business.
“I’m eager to get to know this vibrant community and the things that are important to the people who call the Headwaters region ‘home’”, said Stacey. “It is a time of great change and opportunity in the Ontario health care system and I strongly believe, given our long history of ingenuity and close relationships within this community that Headwaters will continue to grow and flourish”.
In her role as Headwaters President and CEO, a key priority for Stacey will be to focus on strengthening ties with staff, physicians, patients, volunteers, donors, the Local Health Integration Network and the hospital’s numerous community partners and donors to build a health care system that is strong, patient-centered, sustainable and works for the entire community. 
“I am so excited to be a part of the Headwaters family. The immense compassion and dedication of our staff, volunteers, and physicians to our patients and community, was palpable from the moment I walked in the door”, said Stacey. “I am also looking forward to working with the leaders and residents of the community who give their time, energy and support to this hospital – it truly is a testament to the wonderful connection Headwaters has with this community.”
Under Stacey’s leadership, Headwaters will be well positioned to successfully continue to deliver an Exceptional Experience Every Time.
