The Foundation team has a new home! At the beginning of January 2022, we moved into the building in the GBGH parking lot (where the Assessment Centre used to be). Accessible from the doors that face the hospital, the Foundation team is sharing the building with the GBGH Finance Team and Southern Georgian Bay Physician Recruitment.
For many years, the Foundation has been working with Senior Leadership at GBGH to find a more suitable (larger) office area for our growing team, and this building definitely provides ample working space and room to meet with our donors and stakeholders (when gathering & visitation restrictions have lifted). And, don’t worry! Our phone numbers, and mailing address, remain the same.
Working to ensure a thriving and sustainable future for Georgian Bay General Hospital for the next generation of patients in our community is one of our strategic pillars, and this new office space meets the following two strategic priorities:
Continue to innovate and invest in infrastructure, technology, professional development and processes to optimize effectiveness. The investment in infrastructure is already optimizing our team’s effectiveness, as each team member has their own space (office or cubicle) reducing distractions and allowing the team to dedicate their time more efficiently.
Build an exceptional team of talented and dedicated professionals with a diverse mix of expertise, experience and perspectives. There wasn’t any physical space in the old office for any additional team members. The new office has two additional offices which will provide the space we need as we continue to grow our exceptional team.
A special thank you to all those individuals who were great champions for this extra space over the past few years. And, to the Maintenance & IT Teams at GBGH for their help in getting us all set up!
