Bonnie McKee

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee and the Patient Experience Measurement and Seniors Care Best Practice Working Groups

A member of our PFAC team since July 2022, Bonnie was initially recruited to serve on NHH’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee. She quickly responded to calls for interest by other working groups and is currently a member of NHH's Patient Experience Measurement Working Group, Seniors Care and Palliative Best Practice Working Groups, amongst others. Bonnie assumed the role of the PFAC's inaugural chair in April 2023. 

Bonnie hails originally from Toronto but lived for 16 years in the U.S. prior to moving to Port Hope in 2020 during the height of the pandemic. She holds degrees from Queen’s University and a Master’s of Science in Creativity and Change Leadership from Buffalo State University as well as multiple professional certifications.

Professionally, she’s spent over 25 years working with multinational companies in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. as a consumer insight and innovation analyst developing new products and services.

Bonnie’s interest in health care – specifically, senior care – was kindled when she was an essential caregiver for her father who suffered with advanced Alzheimer’s and other physical challenges during his time as a patient in the Veteran’s hospital in London, Ontario. During that time Bonnie sat on a number of committees to improve the quality of patient experience at Veterans and across the St. Joseph Health Care campus. At NHH, Bonnie has had personal experience with the COVID-19 Clinical Assessment Centre, screenings in the women’s health unit and emergency care.

“As a member of the PFAC team I’ve been profoundly impressed by the dedication, professionalism and collaborative spirit of staff and PFAC members. Importantly, the commitment to ‘person centred care’ is not just a strategic priority, but a lived reality at NHH. I’m excited about contributing what I can to champion current, future and unanticipated challenges to  assist NHH in delivering the best patient and caregiver experience possible.” - Bonnie McKee
