Guest Speaker: Mary Clare Egberts, CA, CHE , President and Chief Executive Officer at Quinte Health Care (QHC)

Quinte Health Care (QHC) was created out of a “forced” merger in 1998. Since then, QHC has strived to meet the needs of four communities in an ever changing political and financial environment. Running four hospitals in a rural-urban environment creates leadership challenges that Mary Clare Egberts has embraced in her five years at QHC. 

Based on this experience, she will provide some tips for Leaders on how to embrace integration and change to build a strong organization. She will also speak about what lies ahead for QHC and how its role may once again change as the hospitals in the SE LHIN plan together for Health Care Tomorrow. Hopefully Mary Clare’s enthusiasm and optimism for building a better health care system will provide our leaders with motivation to overcome temporary set-backs.
