Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (RVH) is recruiting for one position on its Board of Directors. Recruitment is open to residents living or working in North Simcoe Muskoka who are interested in helping to guide RVH into its bold, exciting future.
“RVH is looking for a candidate who is strongly committed to the RVH vision, mission and values, has strong personal and professional integrity, and has experience in a governance role,” says Kirsten Parker, chair, RVH Board of Directors. “RVH is a dynamic, growing health centre. We also live in a time of fiscal constraint, combined with ongoing population growth and increasing demand for healthcare services, so governance leadership can be both challenging and rewarding.”
Directors are accountable for the monitoring and oversight of the health centre’s performance goals, ensuring financial accountability, providing feedback and guidance to the CEO, and serve as a link between the health centre and the communities RVH serves.
Most board meetings are scheduled for late afternoons, approximately two times per month, as well as two days per year, orientation and board meeting preparation time. In the event of meetings called on short notice, a flexible schedule for potential board members is an asset.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and must reside or work in the North Simcoe Muskoka Local Health Integration Network (NSM LHIN). Candidates are not eligible if they are an RVH employee, a member of the professional staff, an independent contractor for RVH or a family member of a person referenced.
To apply for the RVH Board of Directors, cover letters and resumes should be submitted to Wendy Sallows, Governance & Partnership Liaison at firstname.lastname@example.org. The successful candidate’s term would begin in June 2017.
