Our Board of Directors

The committed group of volunteers that form the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Board of Directors play an important leadership role in supporting the hospital’s strategic goals and directions, monitoring quality and overseeing financial resources while ensuring the hospital’s services continue to meet the needs of the community.   It is a pleasure to serve as Board Chair with a group of highly skilled & knowledgeable Directors who share a common passion for STEGH and our community.

We are fortunate to have an exceptional leadership team, caring staff, highly skilled physicians and dedicated volunteers who strive to provide excellent patient care, everyday.  Through the commitment and dedication of everyone at STEGH, the hospital continues to meet the needs of the community by:

  • Sustaining exceptional Emergency Room wait times
  • Offering an Integrated Stroke Unit
  • Providing both in-patient and out-patient mental health services
  • Conducting over 8900 surgical procedures per year
  • Delivering over 600 babies annually
  • Offering ambulatory care and diagnostic imaging services.

Plans for the 2018/19 year include the development of a new strategic plan, which will include extensive stakeholder and community engagement. 

I encourage you to become involved in your hospital.
