Originally known as the Lakefield Community Medical Support Foundation (2003), this group is now the MCHC Board of Directors.
The Foundation today consists of 10 Directors all of whom are volunteers. They share a passion for the promotion of local healthcare within our community and are proud of the Healthcare Centre, its facility and its staff.
Ownership and management of Morton Community Healthcare Centre is a huge responsibility and requires a tremendous commitment from each of the Foundation members.
Directors serve on the following committees: Finance, Property and Governance. From time to time members also work on ad hoc groups for particular projects or areas of business. Two directors share the tracking of pledges and on-going financial donations. The Board of Directors meets monthly with subcommittees meeting as necessary to fulfill their responsibilities.
When Directors retire from the Board, the Governance Committee recommends replacements from within the community. Particular attention is paid to the skills required to carry out the business of running this amazing facility. New Directors generally begin their terms at the Annual General Meeting in May.
Serving on the MCHC Foundation is a privilege and makes an appreciated commitment to a very supportive community.
