Niagara Health CEO Dr. Tom Stewart was on approved vacation from Dec. 18 – Jan 5. During that time he travelled to the Dominican Republic.
We recognize and value the efforts of all our staff and physicians who have been working tirelessly and with great dedication. We encourage and support them in taking vacation time while following public health advice.
“I regret this non-essential travel and I’m sorry,” said Stewart. “Everyone should be avoiding non-essential travel now, including me.”
“As a health system leader, my actions in no way reflect the tireless dedication and commitment of the staff and physicians at Niagara Health who go above and beyond to care for patients every day.”
Dr. Stewart will be self-isolating at home for two weeks.
