We are pleased to announce that Catherine Osborne has been elected Chair of the MHA Board of Directors for a two-year term.
The role of the Chair is to assure the integrity of the Board’s process, and to represent the Board within the hospital and to outside parties.

Mrs. Osborne succeeds Bonnie Twyford as Board Chair. Mrs. Twyford has completed her term as Chair, but remains on the Board as the immediate past Chair. The hospital thanked Bonnie for her contributions and dedication over the past two years as Chair. “In my time as Chair of the Board, I’ve had the opportunity to work with a dedicated team of trustees. It has been an incredible privilege to serve as Chair of the MHA Board,” said Mrs. Twyford.
In thanking Mrs. Twyford for her service, Mrs. Osborne noted, “Bonnie has provided phenomenal leadership to the Board during her tenure as Board Chair. She has been instrumental in building a Board of Directors with a broad range of experiences. Our organization has benefited immensely from her commitment and leadership.”
We are excited to have to have remarkable and diverse business professionals as part of our Board leadership. Our new Board of Directors brings tremendous leadership and industry experience as well as financial and governance expertise. Coupled with their passion for our rural communities in London-Middlesex, our Board of Directors will help drive our Mission, Vision and Principles.
