FREDERICTON – There are changes at the top of the province’s two regional health authorities.

Health Minister Ted Flemming announced today that Donn Peters of Horizon Health Network and Joey Caissie of Vitalite Health Network are being replaced February 1st.

John McGarry takes over at Horizon while Rino Volpe is in at Vitalite.

They were the co-presidents of the Office of Health Renewal, which was established last year to help reduce costs in the health care system.

In a release, Flemming says it makes sense for the duo to continue their efforts as CEOs with the transition underway to sustainable health care.

Caissie is expected to stay on with Vitalite in an advisory role.
