St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation has appointed two new members to its Board of Directors.
“We are very pleased to appoint Larry Long and Leah Schatz to our Board of Directors, both of whom are exceptional leaders in their fields, and deeply committed to supporting St. Paul’s Hospital and the Hospice at Glengarda,” said St. Paul’s Hospital Foundation Board Chair Neil Weber.
Leah Shatz is a partner at MLT Aikins, specializing in labour and employment law with a focus on the health and education sectors as well as in the area of Indigenous business and organizational development.

Through personal experience with loved ones under hospice care elsewhere in Canada, Larry brings to our Board deep and personal appreciation for our Hospital’s holistic approach to end-of-life care.
Also this year, we say goodbye to retiring member John Agioritis. We thank him for his years of dedication and service since joining the Board in 2011.
