Clare MacNeil has been a familiar face at the Queens General Hospital for more than 50 years. In 1969, she began her career as a nurse in the hospital, and then worked her way to being the Director of Nursing and the Site Manager. During her career, Clare was introduced to the Queen’s General Hospital Foundation and the work they were doing throughout the hospital.
“The work the foundation does enhances the hospital in so many aspects,” said Clare. “From attracting new people to the facility to upgrading the equipment, our community is working together to create something amazing.”
Clare joined the Foundation’s Board of Directors when she retired in 2005 and is currently the Vice Chair. She is also on the South Shore Bursary Committee. The committee offers bursaries to local students who are pursuing health related careers if they choose to work in the South Shore after graduation.
“The bursary is an incredible initiative to help retain healthcare providers in the community. Many candidates choose to stay and work in the community because of it,” she said. “I’d like to thank the community for their continued support of the Queens General Hospital Foundation. Your donations make it possible for us to provide the updates the hospital needs to help our community members.”
