Join the Board of Directors 

The Board of Directors for the Deep River and District Hospital, North Renfrew Family Health Team, and Four Seasons Lodge Long-Term Care are inviting new members to join our team. For people looking to contribute to their community, serving as a member of a health care board can be an incredibly rich, rewarding, and meaningful experience. To ensure that health care organizations meet the needs of their stakeholders, they need guidance and direction from the communities they serve. The guidance and direction provided by volunteer boards is an integral part of a properly functioning healthcare system.  

Join the Board to help ensure we achieve our vision of an excellent, compassionate health care experience, every time. Those with a deep interest in health care, a passion for improving the patient / resident experience, and an openness to learn are invited to apply. Kindly submit your application to Amy Joyce before Thursday, April 15, 2021.
