  • 1943-2005

The Harmony club was established in 1943 and functioned as a dance club with styles ranging from waltzes, fox trots and square dances. Early organizers included James Richmond and Mac Ferguson with Ed Young serving as first chairperson in 1947. The first dances occurred at the Sons of England Hall near St. George's Square. Eventually the club moved to Old Fellows Hall and Orange Hall on Albert Street and Waterloo Avenue respectively. The club's final activities where held at Eden Mills Community Hall.

In addition to dances, the club participated in organizing showers, gatherings to celebrate weddings, birthdays, picnics, euchres and even baseball games. Membership fees were charged to attend the dances often to help pay for the live bands and to raise money for various charities the club donated to. Membership consisted largely of Guelphites, but over time it grew to include interested individuals from Fergus, Cambridge and Hamilton. In the beginning the club held a membership of about 75 persons. At one point membership reached about 200.

Unfortunately the club was unable to maintain its membership and disbanded in 2005.

Angada Children's Foundation

  • Collectivité

A Children's Hospital Fund Raising Committee had been established in 1951, two years before the Angada Children's Hospital opened its doors to patients. In 1954, this committee was disbanded and the Angada Children's Hospital Committee was formed for the purpose of liaison and public relations contact between the hospital and the community. In 1956, the Angada Children's Hospital Committee submitted its first report to the Annual Meeting of the Board. Two years later, in 1958, terms of reference were given to the Committee with the following three functions: raising of outstanding capital funds required for the Angada Children's Hospital by conducting yearly fundraising campaigns, co-ordination of any business concerning the Children's Hospital other than that of an Administrative or Medical nature, and promotion of good will in this community and in the surrounding area. In 1975 a finance sub-committee with representatives from the Angada Children's Hospital and the Hotel Dieu Hospital was set up to advise on the expenditure and to set up guidelines for the function of this committee. In 1984 the Department of Paediatrics moved to the Hotel Dieu Hospital, and the Angada Children's Hospital Committee changed its name to Angada Children's Committee. In 1987 yet another name change occurred, this time the committee renamed itself to Angada Children's Foundation while retaining its identity and function.

Nurses' Training School of the Kingston General Hospital

  • Collectivité

The Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was founded in 1886 as the Nurses' Training School of the Kingston General Hospital. The School of Nursing was established to provide the Hospital with trained nurses, who had been seriously lacking prior to this date. Under the leadership of the Nursing Superintendents the School of Nursing expanded both in size, organization and educational quality. In 1964, the School moved to it's own building (presently the Louise D. Acton Building). By 1967 the Nursing School was a separate entity from the hospital. Following the introduction of the government's policy transferring diploma nursing to community colleges in 1973, the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was closed, graduating its last class in 1974. Having been a key centre for nursing training within the Eastern Ontario region for over 80 years, the Kingston General Hospital School of Nursing was incorporated into St. Lawrence College, also based in Kingston.

Kingston General Hospital. Office of the Vice President, Corporate Services

  • Collectivité

Since it opened in 1835, Kingston General Hospital (KGH) has been administered by a series of Commissioners, Governors, Superintendents, Directors, Executive Directors, Presidents and Chief Executive Officers. These administrators were responsible for the financial and administrative management of the hospital until the responsibilities were delegated to a single office in the 1960’s. Over the last decade, the Vice President’s portfolio has grown beyond finance and administration to include the planning and management of information management. The Vice President’s title has changed over time but continues to reflect the senior management role the office performs to lead and facilitate the functions associated with the collection and provision of financial and clinical information for the operation and management of the hospital. The Vice President’s title has evolved over time, from “Assistant Administrator (Finance)” to “Associate Director (Administration)” to “Assistant Executive Director, Finance” to “Vice President, Finance & Administration” to “Vice President Information & Finance” and most recently to “Vice President, Corporate Services” in 2001. As of 2001, the portfolio that accompanied the Corporate Services designation included Financial Services, Information Management, Materiel Management and Patient Records & Registration.

Kingston General Hospital. President's Office

  • Collectivité

Kingston General Hospital was established in 1845. Prior to 1958, the Superintendent held responsibility for the Hospital's administration. In 1958, organizational changes occurred that resulted in a change in title from Superintendent to Director. The Director changed to Executive Director in 1972, which was followed with the reorganization of the senior hospital administration in the 1980s when the Executive Director became the President. The position of President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Kingston General Hospital was created in 1984 following a trend in major hospitals in North America to restructure their senior administration along corporate lines in recognition that they were corporate entities. This change came into effect in the summer of 1984. This involved the creation of a number of Vice President positions that reported directly to the President and CEO. In addition, various programs and services have also reported directly to the President & CEO. The President's Office is the main administrative body at Kingston General Hospital. The Board of Directors appoints the President, whose responsibilities are outlined in the By-laws of Kingston General Hospital. By 1989, these responsibilities included acting as the Chief Executive Officer of the Hospital, and as Secretary of the Board of Governors and Board of Directors. He or she was made responsible for the general administration of the Hospital and was required to adhere to hospital policies. The President is accountable for hospital finances and for all employees. He or she is also responsible for ensuring that physicians conform to the rules and by-laws of the hospital as well as governing legislation, and that patients are being properly attended. The President works in co-operation with the Medical Advisory Committee to ensure that the Hospital provides quality care.

Kingston General Hospital. Department of Space Planning

  • Collectivité

Since the early 1960s, planning at the Kingston General Hospital has increasingly become a major administrative function extending beyond the purview of the Chief Executive Officer. In 1958, retired Hospital Superintendent, Fraser Armstrong, oversaw planning specific to the construction of the Connell Wing. In 1965, an Executive Administrative Assistant had planning responsibilities which, by 1968, included 40 construction and renovation projects. In 1972, KGH opened a Planning Office. As Vice President, Donald MacIntyre was responsible for the central control of hospital projects and served as the liaison between the hospital, university, government, and other partners of the Health Sciences Complex until 1975. The office's project management functions evolved further and it came to be known as Planning and Development Office led by a Director. A newly-titled position, Manager of Redevelopment, was established in 1985 followed by Director of Space Planning in 1987.
