Nursing week

The emergency department at Vernon Jubilee Hospital has had its opportunities to make headlines in the news – both good and bad.

We take it as it comes and like to believe that the news we make is a reflection of what is going on around us.

We would like to take this opportunity to submit our own letter to the community we serve.

In recognition of Nursing Week, the emergency staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital would like to thank their community for the trust and integrity they have placed in us.

We strive to support our community in all of its needs when coming to the emergency department and our staff are passionate about giving the best possible care to all its community members.

Nursing Week is a celebration of nursing as a profession, a caring art and a self-respecting choice of contributing to one’s community, and we, as a collective group of professionals would like to thank our community for having the faith to place their trust with themselves and their loved ones in the hands of would-be strangers in the emergency room, knowing that they have come to the right place.

Vernon, and the North Okanagan, we salute you.
