The Scarborough Hospital is seeking candidates to serve on its volunteer Board of Directors effective at the next Annual General Meeting on June 24, 2014.
Situated in the most diverse community in Canada, The Scarborough Hospital (TSH) delivers innovative, high-quality patient care at two hospital campuses and six 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.
Directors on this skills-based Board are responsible for three major roles: developing hospital policy; making decisions about the hospital’s future including its strategic plan; and monitoring quality and financial performance.
Financial, accounting, and legal expertise are among the skills that have been seen as a need in 2014/15 to complement the skill mix of the current Board. Hence, the Hospital is now accepting applications from individuals who hold professional accounting designations (eg., CA, CPA, CMA) and have legal and governance experience in large organizations. Knowledge of government health care, quality-based care and patient safety will be additional assets.
If you would like to be an active participant in continuously improving hospital 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 Dr. Jagdish Butany, Chair of the Directors Nominating Committee at Jagdish.Butany@uhn.on.ca.
Applications must be received by 4 pm on Friday, April 25, 2014.
