Humber River Hospital

Barb Collins was appointed the President & CEO of Humber River Hospital in Toronto, Canada, on July 1, 2016. Ms. Collins is a Registered Nurse, with an MBA from Queens University in Kingston, Ontario. She has more than 35 years’ experience as a manager and director of all major clinical and support areas of an acute care hospital.

Prior to assuming her current responsibilities as President & CEO, Ms. Collins served as the hospital’s Chief Operating Officer. As COO, she was the senior Executive Lead for Humber River Hospital’s redevelopment project, Ms. Collins was charged with overseeing the design, construction and activation of the new 1.8M square-foot Humber River Hospital. A unique opportunity to optimize design, incorporate technology and reinvent processes to deliver more effective and efficient patient-centred care, supported by some of the world’s finest medical technology.

The result is North America’s first fully digital hospital, groundbreaking in its approach to integrating technology across all hospital systems and workflows. At HIMSS 2016 in early March, the Intelligent Hospital Association presented Ms. Collins and other senior Humber River executives with a Special Recognition Award, recognizing the hospital’s ‘demonstrated leadership in the digital health community’.
