Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care in Penetanguishene ON has openings on its Board of Directors.

If you are a caring and passionate individual who wishes to make a meaningful contribution to the governance of Waypoint, a Catholic sponsored specialized mental health hospital, we look forward to hearing from you.

As a board member your previous experience as part of a public sector, not for profit or corporate Board, or as a senior executive, will complement our team of skilled professionals. You will work together with the CEO and board on strategic decision making and oversight, monitoring performance, quality and risk management and ensuring sustainable operations, as well as focusing on reducing stigma and improving services through fundraising activities. The role of the board is to govern and oversee the affairs of the hospital in keeping with its Mission, Vision and Values of Caring, Respect, Innovation and Accountability.

Based on the skills mix of the Board, we are currently recruiting for experienced governors who have knowledge of the health care system and who have experience in: construction and capital project management; research; education and knowledge mobilization, or; clinical expertise. Waypoint actively supports a culture of diversity and inclusion and welcomes applications from all who reflect the diverse communities Waypoint serves including representatives from the Francophone and Indigenous communities.

Our 301-bed specialty psychiatric hospital is accredited with exemplary status and includes extensive outpatient services and an internationally recognized mental health research facility, the Waypoint Research Institute. We are located on the shores of Georgian Bay and provide regional mental health and addiction services to the communities of Simcoe County, Muskoka, West Parry Sound and Dufferin Counties. Waypoint has the province’s only high secure forensic mental health hospital for the assessment, treatment and care of male patients with a serious mental health disorder who have come into contact with the law. We are also the lead organization in the North Simcoe Specialized Geriatric Service, which partners with numerous organizations across the region to delivery physical and mental health care to frail seniors and support for their caregivers.
