The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation will be seeking a new Executive Director this summer.
It was announced Monday that Penny Rolinski, who had been the head of the foundation for the past two-and-a-half years, is stepping down from her position at the end of June.
In a release, Rolinski says the decision to step down was one “based on the changing needs of my family over the next few years to enable my daughter’s continuing education at a new school, in the wake of a school closing.”
Under Rolinski’s reign, many of the plans to raise the community’s $12.7 million share of the cost of a new hospital in Picton were established.
“If ever there was a good time to step down, this is it. The Hospital Foundation is financially strong and plans for the new hospital campaign are coming together exactly as I could have hoped. The Hospital Foundation is in a really good place,” Rolinski added.
Despite leaving the Executive Director position, Rolinski says she will still stay on in some capacity with the Foundation.
The PECMH Foundation says advertising for a full-time position will be published toward the end of March.
