Meet PHC’s new Physician Leads
Six physicians will represent the voice of Medical Staff in Providence’s new, seven-year plan and in Mount Saint Joseph’s (MSJ) Clinical and Master Plan.
These roles will enable stronger representation, collaboration and two-way communication among physicians, clinical and corporate leaders around the work to move Providence forward.
“Our Senior Leadership Team is excited to partner with PHC’s medical staff and physician leaders to achieve our shared vision and goals. We’re looking forward to working together and continuing to strengthen relationships and alignment among physicians, clinical and corporate staff.” – Deborah Mitchell, Vice President – Seniors Care, Organizational Strategy & Partnerships
- The 4 Consultant Physicians for the Providence strategic plan will be connecting physicians with particular skills or knowledge to the relevant organizational projects, and attaching physician priorities to those areas (including some of those put forward last December).
- The 2 MSJ Planning Leads are co-leading the processes and engagement to develop the Options Analysis Report for PHC’s Board.
- These roles are funded by the PHC Physicians & Surgeons Association (PASS) Facility Engagement Initiative.

I came to Vancouver for my residency and I started my clinical practice at Mount St Joseph Hospital in 2003. I have worked in various capacities in the Lower Mainland since then including private office, facility consultation, and also hospital-based with both rapid access clinic and acute care roles.”
