2020-21 Board of Directors
A long time ago, I heard this proverb “He who has health is rich without knowing it,” but I had never stopped to think about it deeply until the moment when I had it and my family needed it. Now I know it and I live it! On a daily basis, health, in all its imaginable forms, is present and the first wish for all people.
It is a privilege for me to offer my financial support and my time to the HGH Foundation. Surrounded by an outstanding team of volunteers, a warm growing community and amazing staff, I feel so at home. Join us in leaving your mark today and for generations to come.
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.

The Hawkesbury and District General Hospital has just completed an intense period of physical change and modernization. We can truly say that our hospital provides top quality health care for the whole community of Prescott-Russell and surrounding areas. The purpose of the HGH Foundation is to contribute financially to ensure that the modernization of the hospital will continue. It is very rewarding to volunteer as a member of the Foundation’s Board of Directors and help bring about these changes.

Having had a career in education, I saw firsthand how the unconditional commitment of volunteers has a significant and invaluable reach within organizations, thus contributing to the achievement of their objectives.
Now retired, I in turn choose to give back to the community what I have received. Over the years, my family and I have used the various services of the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital and I understand the importance of supporting what has been achieved and what can be developed. Like a school, a hospital has an influence that goes beyond the communities it serves. It is a pleasure and a privilege to be part of the Board of Directors of the HGH Foundation.
A hospital such as the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital is an important asset for access to quality healthcare in the region. Consequently, my commitment to the HGH Foundation aims to make a concrete contribution to the continuation and development of the programs and services offered to the community. It is with a great desire to be involved in such a worthwhile cause and with much pride that I joined this wonderful team.
Having worked as a nurse and director at HGH for 41 years, I have witnessed firsthand the impact the Foundation has had on the continuous improvement of services and on the quality of life of our patients and their families. I have also been able to see and hear the satisfaction of HGH’s patients. Through modernization and cutting-edge diagnostic tools, our community benefits from quality care close to home. Volunteering with the HGH Foundation is my way of saying thank you and being able to continue to contribute to my community and MY hospital.
The Hawkesbury and District General Hospital is entering a new era. I am proud to be a part of it and, through my involvement with the HGH Foundation, to help improve access to quality health care for the people of our region. I feel it is important to become involved in my community.
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.
Recognizing the important role the Hawkesbury and District General Hospital (HGH) plays in our community and the significant role it played in my family’s life, I felt compelled to dedicate some of my time and skills to the benefit of the HGH Foundation. HGH would not be what it is today had it not been for the contribution of donors and volunteers over the past several years. As you all know, a community flourishes when its residents help each other, as together we can make a difference. Being part of the HGH Foundation is one of the ways I can give back to a hospital and a community I care deeply about.
