Sturgeon Foundation selects new executive director

By Staff

Morinville – The Sturgeon Foundation will have a new executive director beginning Sept. 26. After an extensive search for the right person, the foundation’s board have selected Dennis Magnusson to take on the role.

Magnusson will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Sturgeon Foundation and to ensure the foundation’s mission to provide affordable, supportive living for seniors and other clients within a respectful and secure social environment is adhered to.

The new executive director brings more than 30 years of experience in health care administration and business acumen to the Sturgeon Foundation. Magnusson is certified with the Canadian College of Health Service Executives and received his certificate in Health Administration from the University of Saskatchewan in 1975.

Having served as a senior executive for both rural and urban health care providers, the foundation believes Magnusson understands the unique challenges and opportunities facing the Sturgeon Foundation. Magnusson will be working closely with a volunteer board of directors and will provide strategic analysis and advice to executive committees.

Sturgeon Foundation is a non-profit management body established in 1962 by Ministerial Order to provide subsidized housing for seniors. The Foundation is governed by a board of directors which consists of representatives from the City of St. Albert, Sturgeon County and the towns of Bon Accord, Gibbons, Legal, Morinville and Redwater. The Sturgeon Foundation manages seniors housing facilities in all these locations, offering two different living options: Independent Living (Self-contained units) and Supportive Living (Lodge units).

  1. Well, Isn’t this all very impressive for Mr Magnussen> Impressive to anyone who does not know what he did to literally tear the close knit family of staff, voluteers and most of all, the seniors living at Chatea Mission Court this past week.

    Mr Magnusses, I charge you with absolute Elder Abuse! Your commandante policy of removing their beloved mentor, friend, family member and Oh, yes, she also was the Manager of this complex..

    Sharon Hill knew more about running a Seniors complex than you will ever fathom. She had heart and soul and fabulous people skills.

    What do you have, Mr. Magussen?? A bunch of worthless degrees that don’t mean anything without heart, soul and fabulous people skills.

    Shame on you!!!
