North Simcoe Muskoka LHIN Welcomes New Board Member from South Georgian Bay

September 26, 2017

Ted Salisbury, the newest member to join the North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integration Network (LHIN) Board of Directors, attended his first Board meeting yesterday. Ted has been appointed for a three-year term, effective August 17, 2017 to August 16, 2020.

Ted grew up in the Midland and Penetanguishene area and recently moved back after decades working in larger urban areas, most recently as Chief Administrative Officer with the City of Brantford. Ted has also held senior roles with the Brantford Energy Group of Companies, and was the Chief Planner for both Oakville and Orangeville.

“I recently retired after 30-plus years working primarily in the public sector,” said Mr. Salisbury. “Being appointed to the North Simcoe Muskoka LHIN Board of Directors allows me to continue to contribute and make a difference.”

In the community, he has served in the past as Vice President of the Dufferin and District Boy Scouts of Canada and as a board member of the United Way of Brant. In his spare time, Ted enjoys going for bike rides or walks along the beautiful trails around southern Georgian Bay, and heading out onto the water to fish.

“Through his career experience and work with community organizations, Ted will bring a strong background in strategic planning, policy development, performance management and governance to the Board of Directors,” said Jill Tettmann, Chief Executive Officer of the North Simcoe Muskoka LHIN.

Ted looks forward to working cooperatively with the other LHIN Board members to make positive advancements in the planning and delivery of health care services in the North Simcoe Muskoka LHIN.
