Alex Munter Leaves Champlain LHIN to Man CHEO – Chantale LeClerc In – October 12, 2011

CFN – The Champlain LHIN Board of Directors is pleased to announce the appointment of Chantale LeClerc as Interim Chief Executive Officer.

Ms. LeClerc is currently the Champlain LHIN’s Senior Director of Health System Integration and was previously Chief Nursing Officer at SCO Health Service, now known as Bruyère Continuing Care. She has worked at the LHIN since 2008, and has been responsible for numerous key health-care planning initiatives. She begins her new duties at the LHIN today.

The Champlain LHIN Board of Directors would also like to commend Alex Munter for his significant contributions to our organization during the past year in his role as CEO.  He has strengthened the region’s health system by making strategic investments at hospitals and community-based agencies in both urban and rural areas of our region.

In particular, Mr. Munter has made great strides in improving care for the elderly by putting in place programs that help vulnerable seniors stay independent and healthy for as long as possible in their own homes.

The Champlain LHIN Board of Directors will now embark on a rigorous, nation-wide search to appoint a permanent Chief Executive Officer.


“We wish Alex Munter all the best in his new posting at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. With his extraordinary leadership abilities, caring attitude, and extensive health-care experience, Alex will no doubt continue to transform the lives of families by implementing innovative local solutions to local health-care challenges. While we will miss him greatly at the LHIN, we’re also grateful that he has chosen to remain in the health-care field in this region. Under the direction of Interim CEO Chantale LeClerc, the Champlain LHIN will keep doing its important work, steadily building on past accomplishments and seizing on new opportunities. The organization is in good hands with Chantale, who is not only an expert in health-system planning but also has a superb understanding of front-line services.”

                                                                      – Dr. Wilbert Keon, Board Chair, Champlain LHIN 

“I would like to thank the LHIN’s Board, my staff colleagues, health care providers and the broader community for their support during my time at the LHIN. Our system works best when we row together in the same direction. We are doing precisely that and have advanced important priorities: strengthening care for seniors, securing funds for important capital projects and expanding the reach of many hospital and community-based services. While I am very excited about the next chapter in my professional life, I will miss the hard-working, extremely committed team here at the LHIN. The Champlain region is lucky to have them working for
all of us.”                                                         – Alex Munter, CEO, Champlain LHIN
