2018-19 Board of Directors
Community support is vital for HGH and it was a key factor in securing the major redevelopment project. The Foundation is a powerful tool through which the community shows its support and contributes directly to the hospital’s success. The new HGH is about improved health services for our communities.
As a member of the HGH Board of Directors from 2006 to 2016, one of the things that always impressed me was the professionalism of the hospital staff – at all levels. Everyone seems to have the same goal which is provide excellent patient care. I lived the patient experience in 2016 when I underwent surgery and have nothing but great things to say about the people who cared for me.
Hospital foundations have become an important source of non-government funding for the acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment. It’s gratifying to be serving as a volunteer on the Board of Directors and contributing to this cause, especially during this period of modernization and expansion of our hospital.
As a member of the Board of Directors, I proudly represent the Foundation in its fundraising activities with the objective of enhancing the quality of care for patients. We have a commitment to our community and we are confident that the population will continue to contribute in order to reach our goal. Let’s be proud of this institution, currently undergoing renovations to meet the needs of Prescott-Russell and Glengarry.
My volunteer work with our hospital for the past 16 years motivated me to further involve myself with the HGH Foundation. I am very proud to work with an organization that contributes to the improvement of care provided for the population of our community.
I have been a member of the HGH Foundation for several years. I believe this volunteer work is important in order to encourage the community to support our hospital. Sooner or later in our lives, we will all need healthcare services and we are incredibly fortunate to have access to a hospital close to home that meets our needs. I proudly support the HGH redevelopment project and all future improvements.
I decided to become involved with the HGH Foundation because I have seen firsthand the incredible care my family members received at the hospital. In one circumstance, the HGH staff saved the life of a member of my family, and in another, helped the one that I loved most dearly in this world pass away with dignity and respect, surrounded and comforted by her family. I will forever be grateful for the care they both received.
