“Mark embodies our mission to serve with compassion while inspiring excellence,” stated Elizabeth Buller, St. Joseph’s Health System CEO.

Fam will officially take the role next February. He will replace interim president Sherri Ferguson, who is set to retire the following month.

Ferguson was brought on earlier this year to fill in during the search to replace former president Lee Fairclough, who stepped aside while announcing her intentions to run in last spring’s provincial election.
