Quinte Health is thrilled to announce the 2024/25 Board of Directors, including four new members who bring tremendous experience and expertise to the highly skills-based Board – Pam Jolliffe, Catherine Gosselin-Després, Reta Coburn, and Steve Geist.  

Quinte Health is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors responsible for monitoring quality and effectiveness, establishing strategic direction and ensuring financial and organizational viability. The Board’s role includes setting the plan for our family of four hospitals and community services, monitoring Quinte Health’s ongoing financial health, performance and patient care, and ensuring an effective two-way flow of communication with the public Quinte Health serves.
