site manager. Palmer succeeds Peggy Hearonemus, who has

moved on to a regional position with Alberta Health Services. “I am very excited to take on this position,” said Palmer, who has served in the facility for 10 years, all as manager of acute care. “My working relationships with physicians and other staff are excellent and I want to further build stronger relationships with the community. “My goal is to continue to work with staff, physicians and the community and Alberta Health Services to provide the best services we can.” Palmer brings 38 years of health-care experience, mostly in Saskatchewan. “I have lots of experience in management and nursing in rural and urban settings,” she said. That includes longterm care, emergency medical services, home care and rural and urban hospitals. After 11 years as site manager, Hearonemus departed with mixed emotions. “I chose to move on in my career,” said Hearonemus, who left in late November to become a clinical quality consultant for the central Alberta zone, based in Red Deer. “It was a huge decision for me, but it was a wonderful opportunity.” She gave high marks to Stettler’s services and facilities. “Stettler Hospital and Care Centre is a fabulous facility, and offers tremendous quality service to the region,” Hearonemus said. “The way of the future is to improve health care.” Stettler Hospital accommodates 26 funded beds, with overflow, and serves collaboratively with the east-central Alberta communities of Castor, Coronation and Consort. Besides a six-stretcher emergency unit, two operating rooms and an 88-unit long-term facility, the health centre also provides full diagnostic, rehabilitation and support services, along with maternity and palliativecare facilities.
