Caring Spirits: Cardiac Rehab Team
Congrats to the Cardiac Rehab team! A patient was so grateful for the care her husband received that she decided to recognize these amazing doctors, nurses and physiotherapists as Caring Spirits by making a donation to the hospital in their honour.
Royal Jubilee is the referral centre for cardiac care for all of Vancouver Island, with 3,100 cardiac cases a year that require hospitalization during diagnosis and treatment. The Cardiac Rehab team provides patients with exercise programs and healthy lifestyle education following heart attacks, cardiac surgery and pacemaker insertion.
Thank you to Compass Group at Island Health for providing these Caring Spirits with Tim Horton’s coffee and donuts!
Please share to help acknowledge the exceptional work of our hospital teams. Over the next two weeks, we want the entire community to hear about the incredible impact our caregivers have at Royal Jubilee and Victoria General hospitals. We’ll be honouring a new Island Health Caring Spirit recipient almost every day, so follow us on Facebook to keep posted!
