In her Executive Message, Fiona Dalton, President and Chief Executive Officer shared:
“We are an organization that puts individuals and communities at the centre of care, and we recognize that for this care to be inclusive and effective, it must acknowledge the intersection of health, social justice and the environment. Our climate reality profoundly impacts each of these spheres, undermining physical and mental health, exacerbating inequality, and damaging the ecosystems upon which we depend. It is a clear and present danger. But it is not insurmountable.
Just as stewardship, one of our key organizational values, has long guided our organization in providing compassionate and innovative care, teaching and research, it guides us in taking personal responsibility for the environmental impact of our organization and finding solutions that will restore planetary health.”
The EPAR acknowledges everyone at Providence Health Care (Providence) for their continuing efforts to achieve environmental sustainability and climate resilience in all areas of our health system, identifies where we need to improve, and makes clear how we can do it.
