Phil Hassen announces retirement from CPSI

EDMONTON – The Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) announced that its CEO, Phil Hassen (pictured), is transitioning into retirement beginning in January 2010. Phil will remain deeply and personally committed to CPSI throughout this transition.

Phil will continue his leadership position as president of the International Society for Quality and Safety in Health Care (ISQua) and his work with The Canadian Network for International Surgery.

Doug Cochrane, CPSI’s Board Chair, along with CPSI’s Board of Directors have begun an extensive executive search for a new CEO. The Board is confident with CPSI’s national and international reputation an excellent candidate will be found.

As an organization CPSI continues to be recognized as a leader in patient safety. The success of CPSI can be attributed to the dedication and passion of the staff team. With Phil’s continued stewardship, the transition will support the uninterrupted continuation of CPSI’s work with partners in supporting patient safety in Canada.

Prior to serving as CEO of the CPSI, Phil served as Deputy Minister, Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
