Premier Health Appoints Livecare Co-Founder As President

Premier Health Group Inc (CSE: PHGI) has shaken up its management team slightly this morning with a new appointment to the company’s team. Dr. Amit Mathur, co-founder and former Chief Operating Officer of Livecare Health Canada has been appointed to the role of President of Premier Health.

Within the new role, Mathur will be focused on that of Premier Health’s global business development. With over two decades worth of experience within the field of healthcare, which includes a focus on rural and indigenous health, Premier Health’s operation is well suited for Mathur’s expertise. A commitment to providing quality healthcare to these rural and indigenous communities has lead to Mathur spearheading initiatives to improve the quality of care for these populations, which included the founding of Livecare Health.

The appointment to the role of President follows the announcement in January that Mathur has also been appointed to Premier Health’s Board of Directors.

Dr. Mathur brings tremendous operational experience and deep expertise in global healthcare which will only bolster our efforts in providing greater access to quality care. He will be a valuable addition to our leadership team.

Dr. Essam Hamza, CEO of Premier Health

Commenting on his recent appointment, Mathur identified that he’ll be particularly focused on leading the firms expansion into the Ontario market. The Ontario market is a key market that Premier Health has identified as providing significant opportunity for the firm given the large population. The recent acquisition of Livecare further bolstered this opportunity, given its strong client base within the province.

Premier Health Group last traded at $0.395 on the CSE.
