May 27th, 2015

Announcement from Dr. Tom Richard, Chair, PHCS Board of Directors:

Dear Colleagues and Partners,

It is with great pleasure that I wish to announce the appointment of Lori Richey to the role of Executive Director of Primary Health Care Services of Peterborough.
The Board undertook an exhaustive process over the last 9 months. Our Search Committee benchmarked the role to other high functioning FHT’s in the province as well as consulted with other partners including the MOHLTC, AFHTO and several consultants. We advertised widely and had many applicants that were carefully reviewed. Finally, we interviewed multiple candidates for this role. I wish to thank everyone involved in this process for their patience as well as their hard work in coming to this decision.

Lori’s dedication and commitment to this organization for the past 8 ½ years coupled with her exemplary performance as Interim Executive Director for the past 5 months, while continuing to deliver her other responsibilities as Director of Operations (HR and Finance), gave the Board the confidence to select Lori for the position of Executive Director. Lori brings 24 years of health care experience in roles of increasing responsibility and looks forward to this exciting opportunity.

Please join us in welcoming Lori to this new position as we look forward to many great things for our organization in collaboration with our internal and external partners.
Lori can be reached through email at or by telephone at 705-740-8020 ext. 317.

Thomas Richard
Chair, PHCSP
