People with a passion for health care and good governance practices, and an understanding of their local communities, are encouraged to apply.
“An energetic and dedicated Board of Directors is vital to a leading organization,” notes Cholly Boland, CEO. “We encourage everyone to consider this important volunteer opportunity.”
“Being involved with the WDMH Board has been a rewarding experience for me,” adds Lisa Little, Board Chair. “It is a privilege to work with the physicians, staff, volunteers and fellow community members to ensure the very best care is provided. I am honoured to be able to give back to my community in this meaningful way.”
The Board’s responsibilities include oversight and accountability for the hospital’s mission, vision and values; quality and performance monitoring; strategic planning; financial stewardship; and relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
