Announcement from the Board Chair

Earlier today, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Cate Melito, announced that she will retire from the Grand Bend Area Community Health Centre (GBACHC) as of May 31, 2021. Cate has brought energy, enthusiasm and compassion to the CEO role for the past seven years.

Over the years, Cate’s leadership has enabled the completion of a strategic plan, recruitment of new physicians and professional staff, and has established strong relationships in the community. Cate leaves the GBACHC in a solid position with a new electronic medical record system and COVID-19 Assessment Centre in place.

The Board will arrange a time to celebrate with Cate and will begin discussions on securing her replacement.

We extend Cate our thanks and best wishes for a healthy, happy and fulfilling retirement.


Ron Sapsford, Chair, Grand Bend Area Community Health Centre Board of Directors
