The province has named a new chief public health officer.

Dr. Michael Routledge, medical director of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority’s population and public health program, begins his new job on Monday.

He succeeds Dr. Joel Kettner, who was let go by the province in January.

Routledge is a University of Manitoba faculty of medicine graduate who has had a variety of roles in Manitoba public health, including serving as a Manitoba medical officer of health from 2004 to 2007. He also teaches in the community health sciences program at the U of M.

Routledge has practised family medicine since 2001 and currently is a part-time physician at the ACCESS River East care centre on Henderson Highway.

"Dr. Routledge has a great deal of experience and expertise in public health. His experience in family medicine and as an assistant professor at the University of Manitoba will serve him well as he takes on this new role," Health Minister Theresa Oswald said in a news release announcing the appointment.
