At KDH our staff are always looking for ways to build healthier communities beyond our hospital walls.
One way to do that is to to help set the direction of our healthcare system. Our CEO has a provincial leadership role, participating on several committees of the Ontario Hospital Association. He is also involved at the municipal level, participating in strategic planning for the Municipality of North Grenville.
Other KDH staff are heavily involved at the regional and LHIN level, helping with planning for orthopaedic, diabetes and hospice services, as well as advocating for the expansion of hospice services.
Other hospital staff are finding creative ways within the hospital to live out our vision of a world of healthy communities: material management staff recently reached out with medical supplies to a community in need half a world away. Read that story here.
