Board Member Opportunity

Sechelt Hospital Foundation is looking for Sunshine Coast community members with time and expertise to share.

Sechelt Hospital Foundation is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to supporting and enhancing the scope and delivery of health care across the Sunshine Coast. In addition to major life-saving technology purchases, such as Cardiac Monitors, CT Scanners, Echocardiography Ultrasound and Infant Resuscitation machines, the Foundation also raises funds for general facilities enhancement, other medical equipment and critical-care beds, among other needed resources.

The Foundation supports enhanced health care delivery through initiatives such as the Staff Education Fund, which promotes and facilitates continuous learning and professional development of health care staff, and Foundation House, which helps to attract and retain visiting physicians, specialists and other health care professionals who provide much needed services to our community.

The Sechelt Hospital Foundation’s board of directors oversees the leadership of an Executive Director and a small staff.  Volunteer board director positions offer the opportunity to contribute to our community of care through supporting initiatives such as our annual campaign, public education on health and wellness (MedTalks), our Hospital Art Program,  Staff Education Fund, fundraising events and a Planned Giving Program to support future needs of the Sechelt Hospital and Sunshine Coast community.

The Foundation seeks to maintain a Board comprised of talented and dedicated directors with a diverse mix of expertise, experience, skills and backgrounds. The skills and backgrounds collectively represented on the Board should reflect the diverse nature of the community in which the Foundation operates. For purposes of Board composition, diversity includes, but is not limited to, work experience, constituent communities, geography, age, gender, and ethnicity and aboriginal status.

Skills and knowledge associated with Foundation board positions are:

  • Health care industry
  • Professional Fundraising
  • Strategic leadership and board governance
  • Coast-based business development and/or ownership
  • Legal expertise

This year, the board especially encourages candidates with capital campaign fundraising expertise, legal background and with experience with health care.
