He currently serves as Senior Vice-President, Patient Experience and Digital Transformation at Health Sciences North in Sudbury.
“We are fortunate to recruit someone of David’s experience and caliber,” said Ms. Bonnie Adamson, Supervisor of BCHS.”

“David brings over 20 years of executive level experience in hospital and community
based healthcare administration and also has extensive frontline healthcare experiences as a registered
nurse, all of which will serve him well at BCHS.”
Working closely with Health Sciences North staff, physicians and volunteers, Dr. McNeil oversaw the
transformation of the clinical organization that resulted in improvements in access to care, increases in
the range and scope of services available to patients and enhancements in the efficiency and quality of
health care delivery for the patients and communities served by Health Sciences North, a regional

A Certified Health Executive with the Canadian College of Health Leaders, Dr. McNeil completed a
Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Laurentian University, a Masters in Health Administration at the
University of Ottawa and a PhD in Rural and Northern Health at Laurentian University. Prior to joining

College and of the Registered Nurses Association of Ontario, and served on the board of the Canadian
Nurses’ Association.

“I am honoured and excited about the opportunity to lead BCHS,” said Dr. McNeil. “I look forward to
meeting the staff, physicians, volunteers, patient and family representatives as well as the community
broadly. Together, we will set the priorities and directions for BCHS and the people we serve.”
Dr. McNeil will succeed Dr. Glenn Bartlett who has been interim CEO since September 2017. “I would
like to thank Glenn for moving the organization forward during an uncertain time,” said Ms. Adamson.
