Horizon Health Network has named its President and CEO of the regional health authority.

After a search led by a national executive firm Odgers Berndtson, Margaret Melanson has been named to the role permanently.

She has been serving as interim President and CEO since July 2022.

“I am pleased to have the opportunity to continue to work on improving the health care system in my home province, especially around our critical action priorities,” Melanson says.

The Health Network says over the past 20 months, Melanson has led the organization in addressing
healthcare challenges by focusing on four critical action priorities – access to services, patient
flow, recruitment and retention, and patient experience.

“With her experience, vision, and commitment, Ms. Melanson was the clear choice to take on
this role on a permanent basis,” said Susan Harley, Board Chair. “I look forward to working with
her and am confident she will continue to help shape the health care system for the benefit of all
New Brunswickers.”
