    Leadership Opportunities to Extend Your Passion

    Board member roles in making a difference

    As parents, aunts and uncles we dedicate our time to our rising stars and the future of our nation. Whether at the ice rink, dance studio

    or soccer field, many of us dedicate and volunteer our time to mentor, coach and help our youth and their friends. We continuously focus on

    helping others to achieve their potential and make a mark in their lives.

    As health care providers we have gained tremendous knowledge, skill and expertise as clinical and administrative experts and have dedicated our careers to client centric care. Many of us work with volunteers and see the ultimate value they bring to the health care system. Opportunities exist

    to give back in different ways including becoming a Director on a Board. This experience creates opportunities to enhance one’s leadership by

    increasing knowledge on how organizations are impacted by legislation, politics, resources, and it’s response to being accountable to the public.

    The Board Directors work with the Chief Executive Officer/President, the senior team, and the organization’s community stakeholders to guide decisions about using limited resources in an environment of competing demands, while enabling the organization to meet the healthcare needs

    of its population.

    Health care board members are accountable to Internal Stakeholders:

    Staff – in creating excellent work place environments

    Health care board members are accountable to External Stakeholders

    LHIN – for meeting and exceeding policy, procedure and by-laws, and regulations

    Partners in care – to integrate and collaborate in the continuum of care

    Communities – for efficient utilization of all resources in the spirit of transparency
