Local Health Foundation Thanks our Healthcare Heroes

On Wednesday, August 18, the Bonnyville Health Foundation (BHF) hosted a sunny outdoor reprieve and gourmet lunch for over 140 staff from the Bonnyville Health Centre and Bonnyville Medical Clinic staff to celebrate their contributions to the safety of our community throughout the health pandemic. In addition to a wonderful meal, the local healthcare heroes also received gifts of ‘wellness’, an assortment of self-care items purchased from local vendors.

The past 18 months have been challenging for everyone and the BHF Directors, along with generous corporate sponsors, believed it was imperative to publicly thank the physicians, nurses, therapists, hospitality services staff, maintenance technicians, diagnostic imaging staff, volunteers, administrators and many others for their role in providing top-notch medical care in our Health Centre and Medical Clinic. “We owe each of them our deepest gratitude for their bravery, their sacrifices, and their endless compassion” said Guy Vincent, Board Chair.

The Foundation would like to thank everyone who helped put the event together including volunteers and the valuable sponsors from our postponed Gala 2020 event, whom were more than eager to reallocate their sponsorships to thank our healthcare heroes.
With the support of our community, we can continue our mission to transform good healthcare to great healthcare for the Bonnyville Health Centre, and that starts with our Healthcare Heroes!
