City of Timmins and TaDH Announce Partnership to Support Leadership at the Golden Manor 

Through a collaborative partnership with the City of Timmins and Timmins and District Hospital (TADH), we are pleased to announce the appointment of Lia Fontana to the position of Administrator of the Golden Manor. Current Administrator Carol Halt announced her upcoming retirement late last year, with her final day slated for June 30, 2022. Lia will assume her new responsibilities effective June 13th, 2022 as part of an employee agreement between TADH and the City of Timmins.

 With over 30 years’ experience in the health care sector, Lia brings a wealth of knowledge in frontline health care, health care planning and development, rehabilitation and care of the elderly. Lia has held progressive leadership roles at the Timmins and District Hospital, including the Rehab/Stroke/Complex Continuing Care Coordinator, Interim Long Term Care Coordinator, Integrated Medical Manager and most recently the Director of Clinical Services where she oversaw Integrated Medical and the TADH offsite facility. A consistent leader, Lia has been instrumental in numerous change management and community integration projects, including the implementation of the Timmins Hospice Centre and offsite facility at TADH.

“If the past few years have taught us anything, it’s that we are stronger together,” states Kate Fyfe, President and CEO of Timmins and District Hospital. “Strong, collaborative partnerships, like the one with the City of Timmins, ensure that our community and district is well supported and cared for. Our community is fortunate to have exceptional leaders, like Lia, in it and we’re proud to support the Golden Manor, its residents and their families.”

“We are fortunate to have someone so experienced be able to step right into the role,” says Chief Administrative Officer Dave Landers. “Our partnership with the Timmins and District Hospital allows our two organizations to work that much more closely together, and is nothing but beneficial to those currently in or entering long-term care. This is also an example of two employers working collaboratively to address current staffing shortages in our area.”

“I’m very pleased that Lia will be replacing me as the Administrator at the Golden Manor,” says Carol Halt, Administrator of the Golden Manor. “I’ve had the privilege of working with Lia in the past, and I’m confident that her experience and leadership style will be a positive addition to the wonderful Golden Manor team! I wish Lia all the best as she transitions into her new role.”
