You are Invited to Our 109th Annual Hospital Day!
Hospital Day 2017 will be held in the Village of Queen Charlotte on Saturday, June 17, starting in front of the new hospital with the parade at 10:00 am. The theme this year is “Putting on the Ritz!" 2017 marks the 109th anniversary of our hospital – of our having healthcare givers and maintaining health services faithfully for over a century!
Hospital Day 2017 will also be our first with our new hospital and wellness centre building, officially opened in November 2016. Many caring people work in this building, and we are pleased to offer both our caregivers and their patients such a comfortable and well equipped environment in which to promote community wellness. We are grateful to everyone who worked so tirelessly to bring this dream to life!
It was with a tinge of sadness that we said goodbye last year to our 1955 hospital building, as we experienced many important life events there. We celebrated births and we mourned the passing of many loved ones there. Our 1908 hospital building still stands, though, just a few blocks West of our new facility.
But a healthcare system is more than just a "pile of bricks and mortar." Its about the people – the volunteers and professional caregivers who have given so much and put down such deep roots in our community.
We hope that you can come and help us honor all of the caregivers who have served us so well over these many years. Please come and share our beautiful place in this world!
