Chief Executive Officer - Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation (Filled)

Strengthening Healthcare Through Community Partnerships.

As the second largest acute care facility in Nova Scotia, Cape Breton Regional Hospital provides world-class care and is home to several specialized departments, including cancer, palliative, neonatal, pediatrics, emergency, renal dialysis and mental health and addictions. The Hospital is in the midst of a transformative journey in how it delivers care and serves the needs of patients, families and communities. Through the Cape Breton Health Care Redevelopment project, the Hospital is revitalizing and expanding its services, including a new emergency department, cancer centre and critical care department. The Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation is an essential partner in achieving the community’s vision for the future and is part of an exciting era of growth and transformation.

Since its inception in 1991, the Cape Breton Regional Hospital Foundation has been an inspiring force in connecting with the community and strengthening healthcare in the region. Through the generous financial support of the community, friends and partners, the Foundation has raised more than $50 million dollars to support healthcare priorities. As part of the redevelopment project, the Foundation has recently committed to a multi-year, multi-million dollar campaign to support the building of a new Cape Breton Cancer Centre. The new state-of-the-art centre will more than double in size and allow for a comprehensive approach to cancer care and treatment for Cape Bretoners.

Today, the Foundation is recruiting a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
