Thurston-regBy Tracey Richardson

Grey Bruce Health Services new president and CEO, Lance Thurston, took time out recently to answer questions from The Owen Sound Hub. Thurston, formerly Grey County's CAO, began his new position Aug. 5, following the retirement of Maureen Solecki.

Q: Why make a change from Grey County CAO to head up GBHS?

A: I have long had a keen interest in health care administration and delivery. This is an opportunity for me to work for a health care organization I know well (having served as a Board member for 4 years) and in a community that I love and wish to continue serving.
