Every day, the Ross Memorial team exemplifies the hospital’s vision statement: exceptional care - together.

Among the valued members of the hospital team are the members of the Board of Governors. The Board of Governors is comprised of volunteers who are elected from the community. The Board is responsible for the overall governance of the hospital. Its members set strategic priorities and ensure they’re met; they assess the quality of the care provided, and ensure financial resources are managed appropriately. In addition to monthly board meetings, members serve on various committees of the Board.

With input from the Board of Governors, RMH establishes strategic directions and sets annual objectives to achieve them.

Our strategic directions provide a framework to focus expertise, address priorities, cultivate excellence, champion collaboration, and enhance our service delivery. In order to achieve exceptional care as valued by our patients and partners, RMH will engage in the following strategic directions:

In order to properly assess the evolving healthcare needs of the community, the hospital consults with its community partners, both within the City of Kawartha Lakes, and in the Central East LHIN.
