Brightshores Health System is currently seeking new Board Members! This presents an outstanding opportunity for seasoned professionals willing to volunteer their expertise and time in the service of excellent health care across Grey and Bruce Counties.

Brightshores is a regional multi-site health care system. With six hospitals and an annual budget of approximately $250 million, the corporation is one of the largest in southwestern Ontario and provides a wide range of medical services and programs across a large geographical region.  Its central facility, the hospital in Owen Sound, offers secondary-level services to much of Grey and Bruce while five rural hospitals provide a diverse range of services.  Working together, the six hospitals and our new Wellness & Recovery Centre – Addictions and Mental Health (set to open later in 2024) – make Brightshores a leader in integrated rural health.

Brightshores is committed to excellence in patient care and the creation of a seamless health care experience for our patients.
