The Scarborough Hospital (TSH) is seeking experienced candidates to serve on its volunteer Board of Directors effective at the Annual General Meeting on June 23, 2015.
Situated in the most diverse community in Canada, TSH delivers innovative, high-quality patient care at two hospital campuses and five satellite sites. It offers a range of services in Emergency and Urgent Care, Mental Health, Medicine/Specialized Geriatrics, Nephrology and Diabetes Education, Cardio Respiratory, Maternal Newborn and Child Care, Critical Care, Surgery, Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation. Among its many awards for excellence, in 2013 TSH earned Exemplary Status with Accreditation Canada, and in 2013 and 2014, earned Gold Quality Healthcare Workplace Awards.
Directors are responsible for three major roles: developing and overseeing governance policy; making decisions about the hospital’s future, including its strategic plan; and monitoring quality, safety and financial performance.
This is a highly skilled, high functioning Board of Directors, guided by the organization’s values of integrity, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence. To round out the Board’s expertise, we are seeking applicants with knowledge and experience in the following areas: providing legal counsel; understanding relevant regulatory and related legislation; enhancing the patient experience and health care advocacy; and leading complex organizations through transformation. In addition to previous Board experience, a passion for health care and serving the interests of the Scarborough community are both essential. TSH is now accepting applications from interested individuals. Knowledge of hospital governance, regulatory issues and experience with health care academia would be assets, as would a governance designation, such as ICD.D or C.Dir.
If you would like to lend your leadership and expertise to a community hospital dedicated to continuously improving health care services for the Scarborough community, and if you bring the experience, skills and enthusiasm necessary for this important role, please email your resume to Yvonne Ragnitz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions about this opportunity, please contact Helen Giffen, Chair of the Directors Nominating Committee, at email@example.com.
Applications must be received by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 7th, 2015.
While we thank all applicants for their interest, only candidates who will be invited for interview will be contacted.
