On behalf of the Board of Directors, I welcome you to South Bruce Grey Health Centre, a dynamic health care organization, proudly serving the communities of Chesley, Durham, Kincardine and Walkerton. We have worked successfully as a multi-site hospital corporation since amalgamation in 1998.

Our skills-based, volunteer Board of Directors brings diverse backgrounds and experience to provide the leadership, governance and strategic focus necessary to guide our organization consistently with our 2021-2025 strategic plan.

There are many exciting initiatives underway within our organization, including ongoing improvement projects at all four of our sites. We continue to work with our system partners in forging new opportunities across the health system in Grey Bruce. We are also working with our Grey Bruce partners to develop a Grey-Bruce Ontario Health Team, that will improve patient experiences and ensure a strong and viable health care system.

Hospitals in Ontario and across Canada are facing significant staffing challenges and South Bruce Grey Health Centre is no exception. In the post pandemic reality, we, like many other health care providers are looking for innovative and progressive means to resolve our health and human resource challenges.

We are determined to meet these challenges and continue to effectively use our limited resources to ensure we can care for our communities today and for generations to come.

We greatly appreciate the invaluable support received through our four hospital foundations, auxiliaries, volunteers and our communities; and recognize the significant role they play in enabling us to provide quality health care close to home.

I am extremely proud of our board, leadership team, staff, physicians, and volunteers and am confident that we will meet our vision of “Together, enriching healthcare in our communities.”  It is an honour and a privilege to serve you as board chair.

Jim Bagshaw
