ANNOUNCEMENT: Foundation CEO, Melanie Adams Retiring April 1, 2019

It is with mixed emotions that the Board of Directors announces Melanie Adams’ retirement as CEO of Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation, effective April 1, 2019.



Since 2007, Melanie has played a critical role in the development and success of our organization, and while we will miss Melanie and her inspiring leadership, we wish her all the best in her retirement and next adventure.


We want to thank Melanie for her 12 years of dedicated service, which involved many significant accomplishments for our Foundation and Hospital, and exceptional healthcare advancements for our community.


Over the next few months, a formal process will be conducted to recruit a permanent CEO of the Foundation. During this transition period, Judith Scott will continue as Interim President and CEO.


As a Foundation, we will continue to inspire our supporters to invest in Queensway Carleton Hospital to advance patient care and healthcare excellence for our community and our region.


We cannot thank Melanie enough for the dedication, passion, and enthusiasm she has given Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation. I am very pleased to share this personal message from Melanie with you.
