The Board of Directors of Kemptville District Hospital (KDH) is currently seeking candidates to fill the position of Director.
Made up of dedicated volunteers, the KDH Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing the operations of the Hospital and guiding its future in the health system. The Board determines the Hospital’s mission and strategic direction, and supports their advancement. The Board is also responsible for the quality of patient care, and ensuring compliance with all relevant legislation and regulatory obligations.
The KDH Board of Directors is comprised of 12 volunteer members and four ex-officio members. The volunteer members have diverse backgrounds and bring a variety of skills and areas of expertise to the team.
The Board is currently looking for candidates for the position of Director with a commitment to community service and willingness to learn and work in a team environment. Candidates must be interested in helping KDH build healthier communities; residence in the municipality is not a requirement. Previous experience on a non-profit board, especially in the health or social service sector, is an asset. In its selection process the Board will be prioritizing strengths and experience in the following areas: legal matters, home and community care, mental health and addictions, construction, and/or project management. Diversity is also an important factor in the selection process.
A Board member can expect to spend a minimum of 10 to 12 hours per month attending meetings and performing committee work. The current committees of the KDH Board of Directors are Executive Committee, Governance, Fiscal Advisory Committee, Corporate Services, and Quality and Safety Committee.
The deadline to apply is September 2, 2020.
