Veronica Carroll is making the move to Victoria after four years at the helm of the Delta Hospital Foundation.

Carroll, who announced her resignation as executive director of the hospital foundation on June 30, will begin as the new CEO of the Children’s Health Foundation of Vancouver Island in September 2016. Formerly known as Queen Alexandra Foundation for Children, the foundation has served children and youth with disabilities and health challenges on Vancouver Island for 90 years. Carroll will remain in her current post until the end of August.

“I’m positive that once the right person has been found to take over my position, they will feel the welcoming arms of this community as I did,” Carroll said in a press release. “In the interim, the Delta community can feel confident that the hospital foundation is in good hands. We’ve built agreat team at the foundation, every single one of the staff is extremely good at what they do and they have a wonderful board of directors to support them.”

Carroll led the Delta Hospital Foundation through its largest capital campaign to date, raising $7.5 million for the new Peter C. and Elizabeth Toigo Diagnostic Services Building. The project will begin construction later this summer.

“Veronica Carroll’s leadership has been greatly appreciated,” said Allan Baydala, chair of Delta Hospital Foundation’s board of directors in a press release. “The Foundation is now stronger because of it. We want to thank Veronica as we’ve achieved many ambitious goals during her tenure. We wish her the best of luck and success in her future endeavours.”

There will be an opportunity for the community and hospital staff to come together for coffee and cake in Delta Hospital’s Courtyard Café to wish Carroll a fond farewell. A date and time for this celebration will be announced soon.
