Trieu is a highly experienced, successful and well-regarded health care executive, and the combination of his experience, relationship building and drive makes him an ideal fit to lead both these organizations into the future.


Trieu will lead a joint venture between the two organizations as they plan for the future of health care in Huron County.


“On behalf of the AMGH Board of Directors, it is a pleasure for me to announce that effective January 1, 2022, Jimmy Trieu will be the joint President & CEO of AMGH & SHHA Hospitals,” said Glen McNeil, AMGH Board Chair. “Under the leadership of Mr. Trieu a joint administration will provide the opportunity for both hospitals to direct more resources to patient care. The role of the Hospital Foundations will remain unchanged, and that is to raise valued contributions from our respective catchment areas for needed equipment in our respective hospitals. I would like to thank Mr. Bruce Shaw, the Chair of SHHA, for his tireless efforts in accomplishing this collaboration in the best interests of our patients,” stated Glen McNeil, AMGH Board Chair.


Bruce Shaw, SHHA Board Chair, indicated, “With the pressures placed on hospitals to maintain efficient and quality service, changes have to be made. The Board of South Huron Hospital is proud to join Alexandra Marine and General Hospital in welcoming Jimmy Trieu to the helm as the one who will lead both organizations into the future. Many more changes, no doubt, will come in the years ahead as the number of agencies providing health care in Huron Perth are reduced in number. By taking this step now, we believe that excellence in delivering patient care is assured.”


“It is my honour to lead two great organizations that have provided tremendous care to the residents of Huron County. These two organizations are thinking about the future of health care and how partnerships can make a difference,” said Trieu.


The Foundations are vital entities to each community and have a proud history of helping the hospitals provide the highest quality care and services possible. Each will continue to serve as community ambassadors for each hospital and will remain separate and independent organizations to serve their respective communities better.
