SBGHC AT A GLANCE
With an annual budget of over $51 million, SBGHC is a dynamic, multi-site hospital organization serving several rural municipalities including Arran Elderslie, Chatsworth, Brockton, Huron-Kinloss, Kincardine, South Bruce, West Grey and Southgate. Each of our hospital sites offers acute care services, a 24/7 emergency department (Chesley and Walkerton sites temporarily reduced to 12 hours), and a full complement of diagnostic and laboratory services. SBGHC also has a general surgery program at our Walkerton and Kincardine sites, and a Family Birthing Centre at the Walkerton site with 416 births last year.
Prior to the election of new Board and Board Committee Members, an interview will be scheduled with interested candidates who wish to let their names stand for election at the Annual General Meeting of the Board in June 2022. The hospital supports its Board and Committees through an orientation session, and ongoing educational opportunities.
If you are interested in being part of our vision to enrich health care in our communities, please contact Madison Curry, Executive Assistant, for an application form and/or additional information. Submissions should be made no later than April 11th, 2022 to:
