The number of people needing mental health care is on the rise, which means the array of needs requiring accommodation has also increased. Every day, we are looking for opportunities to improve the quality of a patient's stay and advance healthcare at Victoria Hospital. Over the past few months, new resources have been introduced that support our healthcare workers trying to effectively connect with as many patients as possible.

I’ve been a nurse for four years. I know that deep down inside, the reason why I chose this career is because of my own personal lived experience. I always think about the type of care that I would have wanted when I was growing up - I talk to every patient in a way that helps them understand that in that very moment, someone truly cares about them and wants to help.
