Committed to care

The people working in health care in the region were a key factor in bringing Pat Campbell to Grey Bruce Health Services, reported the Owen Sound Sun Times Oct. 26. “It’s a real privilege to work with staff who are committed and who care,” said Campbell, president and chief executive officer of the seven-unit regional hospital conglomerate. Campbell began her work in health care as a nurse in 1978. After obtaining an MBA at York University in 1988, she moved into administration and was a vice-president at Women’s College Hospital in Toronto before coming to Grey-Bruce in 2001.
