Ann Dobby

Human Resources

Ann was welcomed to NHH’s Patient and Family Advisory Council in September 2021. She was born in Montreal and attended McGill University for both her undergraduate and graduate degrees in Nursing. Her thirty-eight years in health care took her to a variety of settings including university and community hospitals, the community, and psychiatric and rehabilitation centres, primarily in management roles, and brought her to Montreal, Toronto, Peterborough and Cobourg. Her clinical areas of work included mental health, emergency, spinal cord injury, cancer care and out-patient services.

Ann moved to Northumberland in1994. She achieved what she describes as her “dream job” as Director of what was then “Out-Patient Services” at NHH in 2002, finally working in her own community and helping in the transition to the then new hospital.

Ann retired thirteen years ago. Her interest in NHH’s PFAC was sparked by stories from family and friends about their experiences with the health care systems. She looks forward to sharing those experiences—as a friend and caregiver—and giving back to the hospital and the community she loves and appreciates in many ways.

Ann currently serves as the PFAC representative on the Quality and Practice Committee of NHH’s Medicine program. She will also bring the PFAC voice to selected recruitment opportunities as the PFAC’s Human Resources representative.
