There are more changes coming at scandal-plagued eHealth Ontario, with the government nominating a new chairman of the board and appointing yet another temporary CEO of the provincial agency.
eHealth was rocked by news it had given hundreds of millions of dollars in untendered contracts to highly paid consultants, which eventually cost David Caplan his job as Ontario’s health minister.
The Liberal government has nominated former IBM executive Raymond Hession as the new chairman of eHealth’s board of directors. If approved by a government committee, Hession would replace former bureaucrat Rita Burak, who has served as interim chairwoman of eHealth since last June.
The government also announced it is appointing Michael Fenn as the new interim president and CEO of eHealth, but only until the end of February while it conducts a search for a permanent CEO. Fenn is a former CEO of Metrolinx and was a deputy minister in the provincial government for eight years.
