From the front line to the Foundation

Clare MacNeil has been a familiar face at the Queens General Hospital for many years. In 1969, she began her career as a registered nurse in the hospital, and then worked her way to being the Director of Nursing and then Site Manager. She continued to live and enjoy the wonderful features and assets of Queens County with her husband and growing family.


During her career, she was introduced to the Queens General Hospital Foundation and the work they were doing throughout the hospital. “The work the Foundation does, enhances the hospital in so many ways” said Clare. “From attracting new people to the facility, to upgrading the equipment and structure. Our community works together to create something amazing.”

Clare joined the 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. “The bursary is an incredible initiative created to help recruit and retain healthcare providers in the community. Many candidates choose to stay and work in the community after completing their studies.”

Clare said that “it is very rewarding to be a part of a wonderful group of dedicated people, each bringing their particular skills and expertise. 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 help provide the updates the hospital needs to assist healthcare providers in delivering the best possible care to the people of Queens.”
