Crucial to our progress of opening the Centre is the appointment of an experienced and skilled Project Director. Mr. Terry Mackay fits our requirements perfectly.

He has worked on a variety of projects, the largest and most complex being the Diamond Health Care Centre that is part of Vancouver Coastal Health.  He also has worked on facility development at an international level, as the Senior Project Manager for the Hong Kong Hospital Authority.
