Members of 24 Canadian Forces Health Services welcomed their new Honorary Colonel (HCol), Stacey Daub, MA, MBA, during an investiture ceremony at the 8 Wing/Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Trenton Officers’ Mess, June 16.

HCol Daub succeeds Dr. Amber Hayward-Stewart, of Hillier, who was the services’ first honorary Col. in 2015, with many military links and honours for excellence.

She brings with her more than 30 years of experience in the field of healthcare and leadership.

“I know that, as an experienced individual, Honorary Colonel Daub will help us foster strong relationships with the local community while continuing to support our miliary family,” said Major Alan Found, Acting Commanding Officer, 24 Canadian Forces Health Services Centre.

Daub is President and Chief Executive Officer of Quinte Health. She has an MA from University of Waterloo, an MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business and has been honored in Top 100 Women of Canada, 20 Faces of Change, and with a National Award for Organizational Leadership in Diversity and Inclusion, and a Minister’s Medal for Quality Improvement.

“I am incredibly honoured to have this opportunity to serve my country and 24 Canadian Forces Health Service Centre,” states Daub. “My father served in the Royal Canadian Air Force and he would have been incredibly proud of my honorary appointment and our family’s reconnection to the military. Having recently relocated to the Quinte area, I have been continuously impressed with the role CFB Trenton plays in our military and our local community. I am very excited about building bridges and vital connections across the military and civilian communities.”

As “honorary and advisory,” the rank does not confer authority or command function. Honoraries can provide continuity within the unit on matters of community events and activities, unit traditions, etc. – of importance can be speaking to new recruits and young officers on unit history and traditions.

24 Canadian Forces Health Services Centre is the primary care clinic supporting Canadian Forces Base Trenton. It staffs approximately 100 personnel – Department of National Defence employees, Canadian Armed Forces members, and contractors – over multiple departments including primary care, mental health, case management, physiotherapy, lab, diagnostics and pharmacy. In conjunction with providing care, the clinic is involved in a variety of activities including deployment support for international operations.

From delivering supplies to the high Arctic to airlifting troops, equipment, and humanitarian loads worldwide, 8 Wing/Canadian Forces Base Trenton is the hub of Royal Canadian Air Force air mobility operations in Canada.

8 Wing is responsible for Search and Rescue (SAR) operations over a large area under the jurisdiction of the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) Trenton.

Members of 8 Wing Trenton are involved in virtually every Canadian Armed Forces operation. Most personnel and equipment deployed by air within Canada, or around the world, pass through Trenton at some point.
