“Our purpose as an organization is To Care, as depicted in our new Strategic Plan, “Inspiring Care”. That extends through our patients and families, and across our entire hospital community,” explains Joan Jickling, SVP, Patient Engagement & Chief Nursing Executive. “Our strength, particularly over the course of the pandemic, has been the strong sense of teamwork and the emphasis on relationships and collaboration across our teams.”

The compassion shown by staff can make all the difference to a patient’s experience of care, but in order to provide compassionate care staff and physicians must also feel supported in their work.
