Vancouver Coastal Health has appointed Gerry Latham the Director of the Sunshine Coast.

Latham was hired on an interim basis back in August after Lauren Tindall resigned and moved to Ontario to pursue an opportunity there.

Latham will oversee the delivery of health services on the Sunshine Coast and make strategic decisions about healthcare on the Sunshine Coast.

She has more than 40 years of experience working in healthcare, spanning four provinces; New Brunswick, Ontario, Alberta, and BC.

She is the former chair of the Sechelt Hospital Foundation.
