Southern Health-Santé Sud Points saillants de la réunion du conseil d'administration décembre 2020

Sacred Moment

Board member Bill Osachuk shared the following quote from Pope Francis, which holds special meaning, especially in the current state of the world: “Nothing in nature lives for itself. The rivers do not drink their own water; the trees do not eat their own fruit; the sun does not shine on itself and flowers do not spread their fragrance for themselves. Life is good when you are happy; but much better when others are happy because of you…”

Finance Committee of the Whole

The Financial Report was presented by Ken Klassen. The report showed a small variance from budget for figures as of November 30, 2020. Southern Health-Santé Sud is currently demonstrating a budget surplus of $1.3 million with an expectation for this to reduce leading to our fiscal year-end. COVID-19-related costs are nearly $4 million Year-to-Date.

Board Education:
