New Executive Director for Twin Rivers Health Care Foundation

Twin Rivers Health Care Foundation Inc. is embarking on a new era in operations, following retirement of its long-serving executive director (ED) and recruitment of a new ED to manage the organization's affairs.

Karen Simons is retiring from the position effective April 30, 2016. She has served in the role for the past 20 years of her 29 year career in the healthcare field working in many capacities.

Shauna Hall has been appointed the new executive director, effective May 2, 2016. Shauna comes to the position from Alberta and is originally from the Hillmond area north of Lloydminster.

Foundation Chairperson Muriel Conacher says she and her fellow Foundation Board members make the announcement with equal shares of sadness and excitement.

“We bid farewell to Karen with heavy hearts and deepest appreciation for her two decades of outstanding service to the Foundation, its goals and objectives, and the people the Foundation serves,” Conacher states.

Conacher praises Simons and her contacts throughout the region as a valuable asset to the Twin Rivers Foundation. “I have watched Karen work with those contacts in a manner that has earned her unqualified respect while skillfully exacting contributions to the benefit of the Foundation and its support of locally delivered health services.”

The Twin Rivers Health Care Foundation serves the communities and areas of the former Twin Rivers Health District, including Neilburg/Marsden, Cut Knife, Highway 16 from Paynton to Marshall, Paradise Hill/Frenchman Butte, St. Walburg/Spruce Lake, Turtleford/Livelong and Mervin, plus surrounding resort communities.

Conacher welcomes Shauna to the Foundation, stating: “We are very excited with Shauna's enthusiasm and her approach to her new role. We look forward to working with Shauna in the months and years ahead, and to the continued success of the Twin Rivers Foundation.”

Shauna says she and her family are thrilled to be coming home, moving back to the Hillmond area. “I am also thrilled by the opportunity to carry on where Karen left off and continuing to support the endeavours of the Foundation. I come with a willingness to learn, grow and work to my highest potential,” she states.

On her departure, Simons says “I am very grateful I had the opportunity to work for the Twin Rivers foundation. My sincere thanks go out to the past and present members of the Foundation Board and to the many supporters of the Foundation. I know you join me in extending very best wishes to Shauna in her new role.”
