Countdown on for 2017 BC Health Care Awards
A panel of 18 judges met April 11 to select Gold Apple and Award of Merit recipients in 12 award categories for the 2017 BC Health Care Awards. Award recipients are selected by an independent panel of community, academic and business leaders. Nearly 100 nominations were received, so the judges had their work cut out for them selecting the standouts among the many worthy nominations.
The BC Health Care Awards celebrate excellence and innovation in BC’s health care community by recognizing deserving teams that are improving health care delivery in BC and individuals whose achievements and actions inspire those around them. Winners will be recognized at an awards luncheon on June 26, 2017 at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel. For information, or to purchase tickets, please contact Kasia.Wardowicz@heabc.bc.ca. Tickets cost $89 plus GST.
Giving Back to the Health Care Community
RainCity Housing and Support Society has been selected as the 2017 recipient of the BC Health Care Awards “Give Back” donation. At the gala awards luncheon, $1,000 from each of our Gold Apple sponsors will be given to this charity.
RainCity Housing is a housing first organization with a penchant for pushing the envelope, challenging our own thinking and trying something different in order to drive positive change for folks experiencing homelessness, addiction, a history of trauma, and mental illness.
Presented by the Health Employers Association of BC (HEABC), the awards celebrate successes in our province’s health care community. Awards are for projects that have improved health care delivery in BC and for individuals who inspire those around them.
Award categories recognize innovative health models, workplace health initiatives, collaborative problem-solving and outstanding individual achievements.
HEABC coordinates the human resource and labour relations interests of more than 250 publicly funded health care employers in British Columbia and represents denominational, proprietary and affiliate health employers, as well as the province’s six health authorities.
