Our hospitals and health care centres are able to deliver the best possible patient care because of your support. By recruiting world-class medical professionals and equipping them with the tools and technology to do their best work we are improving the health of our communities and saving lives across the province.

This magazine is a celebration of our values, to transform health care, inspire donors, and save lives.
