We have paused the awards during the pandemic and look forward to a refreshed BC Health Care Awards in 2023.

In memory of Denise Bradshaw

HEABC is very saddened to share news of the recent passing of our 2019 Provincial Health Care Hero, Denise Bradshaw from an unexpected and sudden illness. Denise was a notable health care leader and advocate with a longstanding career of championing for improvement across the system of care in BC, particularly for women and people with substance use. She was awarded the Provincial Health Care Hero award at the 2019 BC Health Care Awards for her work to improve health care services for vulnerable populations, especially women who use substances. One of her major accomplishments was the development and establishment of the Heartwood Centre for Women, a residential treatment centre for women with substance dependence. HEABC would like to offer condolences to her husband and son, extended family and friends, and the many colleagues who were touched by her commitment and passion to improving the lives of others, on the loss of a true health care hero. Denise passed away suddenly on June 28 at the age of 61.
