About Bruyère

Bruyère Board of Directors
Recruiting New Directors and Community Representatives

Ottawa’s first hospital was founded over 170 years ago by the Sisters of Charity. As a Catholic organization, Bruyère is carrying on the values and legacy of Mother Élisabeth Bruyère.


Bruyère is a multi-site academic healthcare organization that is maximizing quality of life and helping people stay and return home. We deliver a wide variety of services in aging and rehabilitation, medically complex, palliative, residential, and primary care. Our research leads to constant innovation in the services we provide with a focus on providing care that promotes independence.


Bruyère has a total of 500 beds over two sites for specialized care and rehabilitation for geriatric, palliative, medically complex, and stroke patients. The Academic Family Health Team is affiliated with the University of Ottawa and provides comprehensive primary health care to over 40,000 patients from the Ottawa area at two locations. The two long-term care homes, with 269 beds, offer residents a caring environment with innovative, evidence-based programming that provide a sense of place and enhances quality of life. In 2020, 120 additional beds were opened at our Greystone Village to assist with system capacity in the region.

We are looking for energetic, skilled individuals to become part of a strong team as we build for the future. Preferred candidates bring knowledge of the health care sector, a strong professional or business background, demonstrated leadership and time to contribute meaningfully to the organization. Recruitment will reflect the diversity of our community and of those we serve. Areas of specific expertise are reviewed on an ongoing basis and matched with current needs.

Directors and community representatives are elected to a term of up to three years with eligibility for re-election. If selected as a candidate, the application process includes a face-to-face interview. As a new Director and community representative, you will receive a comprehensive orientation and be assigned a mentor to guide your growth and development.
