In early February 2015, the Kirkland & District Hospital (KDH) and the Englehart & District Hospital (EDH) received approval from the North East Local Health Integration Network (NELHIN) to proceed with plans for a shared leadership and partnership. The Blanche River Health Partners (BRHP) was established to recruit and hire an Integrated Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and to become a foundation to a partnership agreement that would establish shared principles, values and guidelines that the hospitals will follow in working together. The BRHP was comprised of representatives from both Hospital Boards. Successful recruitment of an Integrated CEO was achieved in the fall of 2015, with a new CEO on-site on November 30, 2015.
