This paper examines how community accountability is exercised by the governing boards of hospitals based on case studies of six hospitals in Ontario – London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC), Hamilton Health Sciences Corporation (HHS), The Ottawa Hospital (TOH), University Health Network (UHN), Sunnybrook and Women’s College Health Sciences Centre (S&W), and Toronto East General Hospital (TEGH). The findings reveal that hospital boards face a number of issues and tensions that stem from directing their accountability efforts towards the organization, the government, and the community in which they serve.
