Perseverance made possible by you

Through this last year, we’ve been moved by the stories of healing, compassion, and innovation made possible with your donations. We’re sharing those stories with you in the words of the people who lived them: frontline staff, donors, and the families we serve across British Columbia. We are inspired by their stories. We know you will be, too.

You’re a health care hero, too

Many of us remember the days when neighbours would rally around if someone in the community got sick or needed help. Often that meant leaving covered casserole dishes on the doorstep. Providing food to those in need is at the very core of what is most meaningful to us. And so, as our teams stood firm on the frontlines, you came forward to help in this most compassionate way with countless meals, snacks, and coffee cards. Know that you gave so much more than nutrition: you gave comfort and connection.

The proof is in our pudding

“We all want to return to the best parts of our lives: precious human contact, a casual social touch, a simple hug from friends and family. Through it all, I’ve seen truly compassionate and excellent care provided to all of our patients and residents. We’ve seen flexibility, innovation, perseverance, and resilience across Providence and we must all be proud of that. It will stand us in good stead for whatever we face in the future. Looking ahead, I see a brighter future.”

-Fiona Dalton, President and CEO, Providence Health Care
