Dear Centric Stakeholders,
I am very pleased to let you know that we have announced the hiring of David Murphy as the company’s new President and Chief Executive Officer, effective May 1, 2018.
David brings over 12 years of healthcare experience to Centric Health, having led major Canadian divisions of two of the world’s largest and most successful healthcare organizations. He joins us from Cardinal Health, where he has served as President of its $1.2 billion Canadian business since 2016. During this time, he led a strategic transformation of the Canadian organization, which included integration of the Patient Recovery business purchased from Medtronic. Previously, David was President of the Canadian division of Stryker from 2008 to 2016. Under his leadership, the organization strengthened its market leadership position and improved operating margins.
David has also earned consistent recognition for improving employee engagement and workplace culture. While at Stryker, the Canadian division was named to the Great Places to Work Institute’s list of Canada’s Best Workplaces (2010-2016) and named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers (2012-2016).
David shares our vision of providing the highest level of quality and care for patients, seniors and other stakeholders, and is committed to working hard to execute on our strategy. He will be focused on executing the company’s growth strategies, fostering a strong organizational culture and consistently delivering operational and service excellence so that Centric Health can create value for shareholders while contributing to the improvement of healthcare in Canada.
The future for Centric Health is bright. The Board of Directors has the full confidence that David, along with our exceptional management team and dedicated staff, will help execute on our key strategic initiatives and lead our organization to new heights.
We wish David the warmest welcome possible.
