Meet CGMH Board Member Lilyann Rourke

Lil Rourke, CPA, CGA joined the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital (CGMH) board in the summer of 2017.

Mrs. Rourke is the President and CEO of LM Rourke, CPA, a boutique accounting firm located in Collingwood, serving both individuals and businesses in the Southern Georgian Bay area.  She brings more than 25 years in diverse tax, financial and business consulting experience to her role as a Chartered Professional Accountant.  Lil is a member of the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario and earned her Honours Bachelor of Commerce through Laurentian University, graduating Cum Laude.

Prior to her role at LM Rourke, CPA, Lil was a senior executive in several hospitals and healthcare organizations in both western and central Canada.  In this capacity she has served as Chief Financial Officer and Chief Information Officer and was responsible for implementing systems that strengthened strategies and operations, contributing directly to mission success.

Lil sits on the Board of Directors of the CGMH and is a member of the Governance Committee as well as Chair of the Risk (Audit) Committee.  She is the past Treasurer and Chair of the Resource Committee.

While recognizing that patients and their families demand a healthcare system that is transparent, accountable and integrated, it is incumbent on the hospital board and management to ensure that they deliver care that is innovative, safe and of exceptional quality.  CGMH has demonstrated that it is an agile organization, able to address healthcare priorities and develop meaningful relationships with the community’s other providers. This will prove to be particularly important as the province’s ministries undergo significant structural change.

Lil regards civic and community involvement as an important responsibility.  It provides the opportunity to raise awareness and influence policy and legislation contributing to positive changes that directly affect the health and wellbeing of our community’s citizens.

Mrs. Rourke and her husband enjoy spending time with their five adult children and three grandchildren.
