Profile 1 - Brian Devlin

.By Ann-Maureen Owens with photography by Bernard Clark

Brian Devlin begins his fifth year on the volunteer board of directors of Providence Care, and his third year as chair, guided by the founding philosophy of this iconic Kingston organization. “One hundred and fifty-eight years ago, three Catholic nuns got off the train from Montreal and were given a year to establish a way to look after the sick, the vulnerable, orphans and the homeless, and that has been the mission of the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul ever since,” he says. “Their legacy lives on in the new Providence Care Hospital, Providence Manor and 22 community care programs in Kingston and 18 surrounding communities.”

With the new hospital offering rehabilitation therapy and mental health care now established — a project that was gratifyingly completed on time and under budget —
the organization will spend the next two to six years establishing a new Providence Manor in the proposed Providence Village of social welfare facilities to be developed on the grounds of the Sisters’ motherhouse, known to Kingstonians as Heathfield.

Brian’s background is not in health care but in education, and he brought to his current role other volunteer experiences, including serving as board chair of another community organization. . . . .
