Arms Bumanlag Joins Erie Shores Healthcare

Erie Shores Healthcare (ESHC) is proud to announce and welcome Arms Bumanlag as the organization’s Director of Communications & Public Relations.

Arms will be responsible for the overall communications strategy both internally and externally for the Hospital, building positive and strong relationships with staff, board of directors, community health partners, politicians, the media and the people of Windsor and Essex County — in person and on social media. Arms will serve as the spokesperson for the Hospital.

He joins the Erie Shores Healthcare team from almost 20 years of broadcasting here in Windsor Essex —most recently as the 6 p.m. News Anchor for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. In addition to anchoring the newscast locally — Bumanlag connected with the community with a series of live newscasts and panels on location and stories about mental health and Autism in Windsor.

Arms tells Biz X magazine, “Having a child changes your priorities. Having a child with medical needs like my son Liam has thrust my wife and I into the healthcare world — and has opened my eyes to the amazing work being done by physicians, nurses, medical professionals around our area. This allows me to give back and to tell the stories of their work — and serve the patients and communities that make up our region. It truly is all about compassionate care close to home — I’m lucky to be able to join the ESHC leadership team.”

Janice Dawson, CEO is thrilled to welcome Arms to the ESHC leadership team. “As the landscape of Healthcare is ever changing, and ESHC is committed to meet the care needs of the communities we serve, we need to ensure that we are engaging with our communities, staff and physicians and informing them of what is happening at the local healthcare level. I am confident Arms is the right person to be able to do just that.”

Bumanlag has an extensive career in television and radio — as a talk show host, to weather specialist, to marketing and sales — and community outreach at AM800 CKLW and CTV Windsor. The last year of being in the healthcare system with his family drove home the importance of local, compassionate healthcare for him.

Kristin Kennedy, CNE adds, “Having Arms as the Director of Communication and Public Relations will be a valuable addition to ESHC. Not only does he bring a vast amount of experience and expertise to ESHC, he brings with him a connection to Healthcare that is a rare find.”

Bumanlag begins his new position at Erie Shores Healthcare, 194 Talbot Street West in Leamington on Monday May 27, 2019 getting involved in a number of community events for the Hospital and familiarizing himself with the staff, services and people that make up Erie Shores Healthcare. Learn more at
