KELOWNA - A new president and chief executive officer has been named for the Interior Health Authority.

It was announced at a board meeting today, Oct. 6, that Chris Mazurkewich will take over as president and CEO on Oct. 26. He is replacing Dr. Robert Halpenny, who announced his resignation earlier this year. Halpenny’s last day with Interior Health will be Oct. 23.

“As a strategic systems thinker, he will be a good fit with our high functioning executive and senior leadership teams – guiding us as we improve the cost effectiveness of our acute care system; accelerate a robust community care system; and better address population health needs in order to reduce future growth in demand on hospital and facility-based care,” Interior Health Board of Directors Chair Erwin Malzer says in a release.

Mazurkewich most recently spent four years at Alberta Health Services and before that was with Interior Health as the chief operating officer of strategic and corporate services.
