Congratulations a​nd Thank You to our Long Service Recipients this Year!

It is that time of year again when we send a sincere thank you to the staff, medical staff and volunteers who have reached significant career milestones at PHC from 5 to 50 years-of-service, but what we are truly commemorating is so much more than tenure. It is through our dedicated colleagues that we carry on a legacy of leadership in compassionate, mission-driven care and innovation that benefits the people we serve.

Starting in March, Long Service Recognition begins with a return to in-person celebrations in conjunction with each site’s Feast or Foundress Day! These celebrations allow us to honour both our shared heritage and the 2022 recipients who carry this legacy of hope into the future by dedicating their time, knowledge, skills and expertise to help patients, residents and families throughout our sites and in the communities we serve.

The Long Service Recognition Event is a formal opportunity to express our deep appreciation to all the dedicated people who contribute to improving countless lives. It is also a chance to look back on our accomplishments during our time at Providence, as individuals and as a collective. We remember the legacy that shapes us and we continue to build on it, by constantly evolving and finding ways to make a difference. It is what we do – we lead with our heart – sparking innovation, transformation, and change.​

All are invited to attend these in-person site recognition events and join us as we celebrate those being honoured this year.  Please speak with your supervisor, leader or manager if you will be attending while on shift. Those celebrating 25 years-of-service or more, will also receive an invitation to a special dinner event in June honouring our longest serving staff as well as the recipients of this year’s Mission Awards.  Event invitations will be sent out by email in the spring.

To learn more about Long Service Recognition at Providence see our Long Service Q&A and the schedule of recognition events happening across our sites from March to December of this year.
