Board of Governors

Based on the current skills mix of the Board, there is a need for Governors with expertise in the areas of financial strategy, information technology (privacy and security), and matters of environmental, social, and governance (ESGs). While not critical, ideal candidates would be members of the broader NYGH geographic community. Regardless of the professional competencies, we seek experienced governors who have held or hold board positions in both the private and public sectors.

We have a strong desire to have our Board closely reflect the diverse populations served by the hospital. As a result, we welcome applications from women, racially visible individuals, people with disabilities, Indigenous peoples, and 2SLGBTQIA+ persons. We are committed to providing persons with disabilities with equal opportunities and standards of goods and services, and we are fully compliant with applicable provincial Disabilities Acts.
