A vacation in the Dominican Republic has cost the CEO of Niagara Health his job.
Doctor Tom Steward had been the CEO of Niagara Health and St. Joseph’s Health System and sat on a COVID-19 panel that advises the Premier.
He resigned from that panel after arriving home from the trip which occurred while government advisories were urging people to stay home over the Christmas break.
Niagara Health and St. Joe’s have a contractual agreement to share various services, including a joint CEO.
Niagara’s board of directors says it is no longer purchasing CEO services from St. Joe’s effective immediately.
St. Joe’s hasn’t commented on Stewart’s future.
