Common Board of Directors

The Huron Health System consists of the Alexandra Marine & General Hospital and the South Huron Hospital. Services delivered by the Huron Health System include: 24/7 Emergency Services, Mental Health, Surgical Services, Diagnostic Imaging, Laboratory Services, Intensive Care Unit, Acute Care, Obstetrics, Rehabilitation, Complex Continuing Care and various outpatient services. 


Our voluntary Common Board of Directors is comprised of dedicated volunteers from the community and consists of 15 elected members and six ex-officio members.

The HHS Common Board of Directors is responsible for the overall governance of the affairs of the hospitals. Each director is expected to act honestly, in good faith, and in the best interests of the hospitals and in so doing, to support the hospital in fulfilling its mission and discharging its accountabilities.

Board Recruitment

Healthcare touches everyone in our community. If you’re looking for a place to volunteer your skills and have a wide community impact, HHS is interested in you. 


Our HHS Common Board is focused on governance, so you won’t be asked to raise funds. Our committees can be a bit more hands-on in their tasks but ultimately, they all make recommendations to the HHS Common Board.
