Paul Clarry, Vice President of Facilities and Paramedical Services at Southlake Regional Health Centre, joined the senior administration team at Southlake in February 2002, following a 21-year career in the Ontario Public Service.
After graduating from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Arts (Majors in Economics and Political Science) in 1981, Paul held progressively responsible positions in the Ministry of Treasury and Economics, the Ministry of Finance, and the Management Board Secretariat. Prior to joining Southlake, he spent almost five years providing leadership and direction to the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care Capital Program.
Paul has led the dramatic transformation of Southlake. Paul is leading efforts to transform the delivery of Diagnostic Imaging, Laboratory and Pharmacy services in support of Southlake through strategic investments in infrastructure, technology and staffing.
In 2005, Paul led the development and implementation of a new model for the Support Services (Environmental, Transport, Linen, Food, and Call Centre Services) at Southlake to improve quality, patient and staff satisfaction, and accountability in both financial and service performance. In 2011, following a review of the Support Services operations, Paul recommended and has since implemented, further innovations to build on the success of the previous transformations and to focus on service excellence.
In 2011 and again in 2013 Paul assumed interim responsibility as Vice President, Regional Cancer Program overseeing the senior management of the Stronach Regional Cancer Centre.
Paul continues to be involved in capital planning initiatives through the Ontario Hospital Association and through his many contacts in the hospital, government, consulting, and contracting industries.
He served as the Chair of the SEIU Bargaining Team on behalf of the Ontario Hospital Association and its 34 member hospitals with respect to the 2011 round of bargaining and will be continuing in this role for the current 2013 round of negotiations.
