Dianne Doyle
President and Chief Executive Officer
Providence Health Care

Dianne Doyle was appointed in September 2006 as President and Chief Executive Officer of Providence Health Care, one of Canada's largest faith-based health care organizations based in Vancouver, BC.

Dianne brings to the role more than 20 years of senior executive experience in health care and over 25 years directly at Providence Health Care. Before taking on this new role, Dianne was a Vice President of Clinical Programs at Providence Health Care.

Dianne began her career as a staff nurse at Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria, BC, but since then has worked exclusively in our Providence Health Care facilities. She was a Head Nurse and Medical Instructor at St. Paul's Hospital and then moved to Mount Saint Joseph Hospital as Vice President Patient Care Services. She became the Chief Operating Officer and Vice President, Patient Care and Support Services for Mount Saint Joseph in 1995/96 and was then named Acting President and Chief Executive Officer, CHARA Health Care Society, which at the time included Mount Saint Joseph Hospital, St. Vincent's Hospital, and Youville elder care residence.

Dianne is recognized as a champion of Catholic health care provincially and nationally.

Her commitment to bringing her leadership to the governance of non-profits is evidenced by her continuous appointments to non-profit boards, including the following positions held within the last 10 years:
  • Chair of Catholic Health Association of BC
  • Chair of the Governing Council for the Catholic Health Alliance of Canada
  • President and member of the Board of the Denominational Health Association, Burnaby, BC
  • President of Canadian Advanced Medical Services International
  • Board member of Royal Roads University Centre for Health Leadership/Research Advisory Board, Victoria BC
  • Board member of the Canadian College of Health Services Executives, the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation
  • Board member of the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation EXTRA Advisory Council
  • Board of the Mission to Seafarers, Vancouver BC
  • Member of the Alumni UBC Advisory Council
  • Mentor with the Vancouver Board of Trade (VBOT) Leaders of Tomorrow Program
In addition to her commitment to improving health of the general public, Dianne has also made a great impact for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged members of society, such as the elderly or patients with HIV or AIDS, mental illness, addiction, or complex cardio-pulmonary and kidney illnesses.

These values are demonstrated outside of her profession in her volunteer work for many non-profits, participation on the North Shore Regional Board Women’s Health Advisory Committee and in her incredible accomplishment of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

Today, Dianne continues to help nurses and her community aspire to new heights. Dianne has a BSN from the University of Ottawa and an MSN from the University of British Columbia. Her health leadership credentials include a CHA in Health Services Management, a CHE Certification from CCHSE, and Fellowship in CCHSE.

In 2007 and 2008, the Toronto-based Women’s Executive Network named Dianne as one of Canada’s Top 100 Most Powerful Women in the Public Sector. And in 2013 Dianne was the recipient of the CRNBC Award of Distinction.
