On Monday, the Lloydminster Region Health Foundation (LRHF) announced Stephanie Brown Munro has been appointed CEO of the organization after former CEO, Malcolm Radke, resigned in early January to pursue a career in high-tech sales. 

Brown Munro first joined the LRHF team in May of 2018 when she took on the role of fund development officer, and since that time, she has built strong community relationships and new fundraising partnerships.

Not only has she played a vital role in fundraising initiatives such as Lloydminster’s Gift to Health Digital Stream, but she has also written a number of successful grants and proposals for additional healthcare innovation in the region.

With nearly 20 years of experience in healthcare as a nurse prior to entering the fundraising field, along with her four years of experience as a councillor with the City of Lloydminster, and serving on the Yellowhead East Health Advisory Council and the Lloydminster & District Advisory Council, Brown Munro is excited to see what challenges lie ahead. 

“I was extremely honoured and excited when I found out,” she said. 

“There’s definitely some really big shoes to fill, though. Malcolm has done an exceptional job leading this organization and I definitely wish him the best in future endeavours.

“Although those shoes were pretty overwhelming to fill, it’s still humbling and I am very honoured to lead the organization I am so passionate about.”

With a background in healthcare and nursing, Brown Munro is very passionate about healthcare, and she’ll be the first one to tell you she truly believes “a community is only as strong and healthy as the people in it.”

“For me, that’s what really drew me to the Foundation,” she said. 

“I couldn’t sell a car unless I really loved it, but I tell people, when it comes to fundraising for healthcare and advancements in healthcare, everybody in our community at one time or another, will be influenced or affected by healthcare in some way.

“It’s so important for me to have those resources available in our community.”

Along with her passion for healthcare, Brown Munro also loves to help people, in general, and she believes this new role will allow her to better the community as a whole.

“That’s what the Foundation does,” she said. “We’re the catalyst in the ability to provide the enhancements for the nurses and the doctors to be able to provide the best care possible for that community.”

Brown Munro explained she and Radke have been doing some job-sharing for the last week, but her title as CEO officially took effect on Tuesday.

“I feel like the possibilities for the future are endless,” she said. “I have an amazing, passionate and supportive board to work with, as well as staff that have been in place for a long time.”

Jeff Kerr, chair of the Foundation’s board of directors, stated, “On behalf of the board, we are delighted that Stephanie has accepted the position of CEO of the LRHF.

“Stephanie brings a wealth of experience and knowledge that makes us fully confident of her assuming this role with the Foundation. She is very passionate about our community, and we look forward to Stephanie’s leadership in working with our donors and stakeholders to continue the Foundation’s work to enhance healthcare in our community.”
