LONDON, ON, Jan. 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Salus Global Corporation today
announced that Dr. Ken Milne has completed his term as President and
CEO and has moved into a senior executive advisor role to lead key
development projects as the company continues to promote a culture of
safety in healthcare around the world. As a prominent obstetrician with
a passion for patient safety and professional development, Dr. Milne
developed the ground breaking MOREOB Program more than ten years ago. Today, implementation of the MOREOB Program has resulted in a significant reduction of adverse events as
well as a measurable reduction of insurance costs and claims.
"We would like to thank Dr. Milne for his vision and leadership and are
thrilled that Ken has agreed to continue his mission which will
certainly have a positive impact on Salus Global Corporation going
forward" stated Peter Flattery, Chairman of The Board. As a result of
Dr. Milne's efforts and the 'MOREOB effect' having been realized Canada-wide and in other parts of the world, his
place in history as a health care visionary and innovator is assured.
Dr. Milne expressed his gratitude and went on to say "I feel very
fortunate to have been able to work with a dedicated and passionate
group of people, who are committed to helping health care providers and
institutions work together in collaborative teams to achieve the goals
of a safety culture." He went on to state that he will remain "fully
committed" to building and promoting a culture of safety in healthcare
around the world.
Malcolm Eade has assumed the role of President and CEO of Salus Global
Corporation. "With the appointment of Malcolm and the retention of Ken,
our business and leadership team is now stronger than ever. Salus
Global Corporation is well-positioned for success going forward as we
continue to build on our legacy" said Mr. Flattery. The company has
been steadily expanding its senior leadership in recent years, and
today's announcement continues this evolution.
Mr. Eade is a strategic leader with a commitment to excellence that has
extensive experience in healthcare across a variety of disciplines.
After a sixteen year career with Johnson & Johnson where his last role
was Vice President and General Manager, he went on to hold senior
executive positions with The Canadian Medical Association and Allergan
Canada. "With his strong record of success in building long-term
sustainable results for very large health care companies, we are
fortunate to have Malcolm on board as we enter a new growth phase"
added Mr. Flattery.
"I will be working side by side with Ken to ensure that a smooth
transition occurs and am very excited about the opportunity to work
with such a great team. I look forward to building on Ken's legacy as
we accelerate our growth and expand the presence of our programs across
all healthcare enterprises" advised Mr. Eade.
