Health PEI CEO Dr. Michael Mayne is leaving the health authority in October to focus on his family and pursue personal and professional interests.
Dr. Mayne has been the CEO of Health PEI since April, 2016. He previously served as deputy minister of the Department of Health and Wellness from 2011-2016.
The Health PEI Board of Directors says that under Mayne’s leadership, Islanders benefitted from new programs such as the Generic Drug Program, enhanced addictions programming, and better access to primary care.
Dr. Mayne says the decision does not come lightly, and is entirely a personal one.
The Health PEI Board will immediately begin the transition and recruitment process for a new CEO.
