They are humans first, who put other humans first.
They care for the vulnerable, injured, and sick—you, your neighbour, your spouse, your parent.
More than 7,900 caregivers and staff work around the clock at Royal Jubilee, Victoria General, and Gorge Road hospitals. Their commitment and dedication to our community make us safer, now more than ever.
These are their stories.
These stories remind us that a caregiver can also be a mother or a father; they can be a friend; they can have a favorite song; they can have fears; they are human—and, like all of us, they have a story to tell. These are stories told in elevators, waiting areas, cafeterias, and benches outside hospital wings. They are vulnerable, nuanced, honest, and, if only in the smallest of ways, they unite our three hospitals, our care teams and staff, our giving community, and every person who has ever stepped foot inside our local hospitals. #HumansFirst
