Shirley McClellan joins the Covenant Health Board
May 7, 2010
Board Chair John Brennan is pleased to officially welcome former Minister of Health Shirley McClellan to Covenant Health’s Board of Directors.
“Shirley has played a pivotal role in advancing faith-based health care in this province,” he says. “We are pleased to have the gift of her wisdom and leadership on our Covenant Health team.”
While Minister of Health, Shirley led efforts to establish the Master Agreement that articulates the role of voluntary organizations (including Covenant Health) in Alberta’s health system. “One of the proudest things I accomplished in my time in health was seeing the successful conclusion to that agreement,” says Shirley.
One of Alberta’s most respected politicians, Shirley served as a Member of the Legislative Assembly for the Drumheller-Stettler constituency from 1987 to 2007. During her six terms in office, she served in a variety of high-profile cabinet roles—including Deputy Premier and Finance Minister.
