A few words from Board members

Prior to becoming a member of the HGH Board of Directors, I knew very little of the health system. Today I realize the many contributions that a person can make to improve health services in the region by serving on the HGH Board.

-Jo-anne Laviolette, Resident of the Village of Casselman
Member of the HGH Board of Directors since 2012

Access to healthcare is very important in rural areas. I joined the HGH Board because I want to make known the services of our hospital to the entire Prescott-Russell region.

-Laurent Souligny, Resident of The Nation Municipality
Member of the HGH Board of Directors since 2012
