Job Description

Board of Directors - Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre

Make each life better. Together.

Location: Barrie, ON, Canada

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre (, located in Barrie, Ontario, Canada, has a long, proud history of caring for the region, tracing its roots back to 1891 when the first Barrie General Hospital opened with just four beds. In 1897 the renamed Royal Victoria Hospital opened and since then the city and the hospital have shared a story of incredible growth and a dynamic vision for the future. In 2012 we opened our $450 million expansion that doubled the size of the building.

Today, we are well underway with our ambitious plan to transform healthcare in the region with an integrated two-campus model, including doubling the size of the current facility and developing a new Innisfil Campus. We’re also in the process of establishing a new Strategic Plan which makes it an incredibly exciting time to join the Board, as it’s an opportunity to be part of something new and impactful.

We strive to make RVH the best place to work, practice, volunteer and most importantly, to receive care. Core to RVH’s success is a dedicated, compassionate team of over 4500 highly skilled employees, physicians and volunteers. Team RVH works hard every day, without exception – to ensure we are supporting the health centre’s vision to Make each life better. Together.

RVH is currently seeking to recruit three individuals to serve as volunteer Directors on its Board. This role requires senior level leadership experience and involves oversight responsibilities as well as the ability to drive strategic thinking in the context of a complex organization and evolving health system. Ideally, candidates will demonstrate a track record of effective board governance, working in collaboration with others to achieve objectives, as well as a strong commitment to patient-centred care, community service and RVH’s vision.

In addition, the recruitment and selection process is designed to maintain a board that includes experience/competency in the following areas:  government relations, community engagement, business/finance, IT, HR and construction.

Interested in this opportunity to advance health care for the communities RVH serves? If you can volunteer 10 to 15 hours per month (meeting preparation and attendance) and meet the Board requirements described above, we want to hear from you. Board Directors are elected for up to a three-year term with the opportunity for renewal.

The deadline for submission is April 26, 2024. We thank all candidates for their interest. Only those selected for an interview will be contacted. RVH is committed to inclusion and diversity and welcomes individuals who represent the diversity of the communities we serve.
