Working at Vanderhoof hospital an honour

I just wanted to write and say how honoured I feel to have worked with such a great team of people at St. John Hospital. I worked at St. John from Nov. 2006 until Jan. 2011.

The community of Vanderhoof is very fortunate to have such caring compassionate, dedicated and competent people throughout  the entire hospital. The first thing that catches your eye when you enter the doors is the gleaming clean floors. This building is cleaned with TLC and is one of the cleanest I have ever seen. The maintenance staff diligently upgrade and repair this old building with dedication and a wealth of knowledge to do so. The diagnostic staff in the medical laboratory and radiology have years of experience amongst them. Their strive for excellence is behind the scenes and the general public could never imagine what is entailed achieving and maintaining such high standards. The nursing staff and medical staff are some of the best I have ever seen. The operating room and CSR is a well-oiled machine and definitely something to be proud of. The home care, health records, office staff, physiotherapy, dietary and pharmacy again all have top notch people working in these departments. The food service people serve the best menus in this moderate day health care system. The administrator sets a fantastic tone for the rest of the staff. Roll up our sleeves and let’s work together to get the job done. (Even if it means she is out shovelling snow) .

I know I am a better person for working at St. John Hospital and I just want to say thanks to all of you at St. Johns. I will always miss you.
