Canterbury House announces new chairman and president

Dr. Edmund Rhett Jr.

Canterbury House is under new leadership as its chairman and president, Dr. Edmund Rhett Jr., officially stepped down from his post this morning. Fred Fabian, president of eLifespaces, will succeed him in the role, effective immediately. The appointment completes the organization’s planned transition that was initiated about one year ago.

Rhett has served the Canterbury House board for decades and will continue his role on the board to lend his experience and time to further the organization’s growth.

Rhett, an obstetrics & gynecology specialist in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, has over 40 years of experience in the medical field. After graduating from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee with a degree in biology, he received his medical degree from The Medical College of Georgia. Four decades ago, Rhett started the first OB/GYN practice in Mount Pleasant. An estimated 7,000 babies delivered later, Rhett stepped away from obstetrics and opened Rhett Women’s Center (RWC), a full-service gynecology office specializing in the comprehensive treatment of women of all ages from adolescence to menopause.

With its new leadership in place, Canterbury House will continue to fulfill its mission to keep residents living independently in their own apartments with additional supportive services to meet their daily needs.
