Hospital Foundation Welcomes New Board Chair

By October 28, 2019 News

The Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation Board of Directors recently welcomed a new Board Chair, Moira Jenkins. Moira takes over the role from previous Board Chair, Greg Scott. We thank Greg for his dedication as our Board Chair for the past four years and welcome Moira to her new position!

During his tenure, Greg provided exemplary leadership and vision for the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation Board. He has been on the Board since 2008 and has served in a number of positions and on numerous committees to help the Hospital Foundation fulfil its mission. We look forward to his valued contributions as Past Chair this coming year.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the donors, the NDHF board, staff and volunteers, and Island Health staff for improving healthcare in the Central Island region. I am humbled and honoured to have had the opportunity to be Chair for the past four years. I am excited to see how the Hospital Foundation improves healthcare excellence on Vancouver Island in the years to come.”

Moira has been on the Hospital Foundation Board for four years and has served in a number of capacities, most recently as Vice Chair. We thank her for her service to date and look forward to her strategic leadership as we launch the biggest fundraising campaign in our Hospital Foundation’s history in 2020.

“It is an honour and a pleasure to be elected as Chair of the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation. The board, staff and volunteers, under the excellent Board leadership of Greg Scott and with the tremendous work of CEO Janice Perrino and her dedicated staff, have achieved excellence in fundraising for healthcare in our region. It is a privilege to be a part of this passionate team. I want to personally thank our donors whose commitment to healthcare in our community is so appreciated. Your generous support allowed us to commit to $3.8 million in projects in the region last year. It is an exciting time for our hospital with the expansion of our cardiac and endoscopy departments and of course the important news of a new ICU.  We have lofty goals to support these and other projects. We again look to you and others to help us build a groundswell of support for healthcare here in the Central Island. Thank you for all your help.”

The Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation is grateful for the hard work and commitment of our board. To learn more about Greg, Moira and the rest of our exceptional board members, please visit: https://nanaimohospitalfoundation.com/board/
