  • February is Psychology Month and we are so excited to profile one of our psychologists! Meet Mollie, a psychologist at the BC Operational Stress Injury (OSI) Clinic where she treats active and retired military and RCMP members who’ve sustained psychological injuries from their service. “The part I enjoy most is the fact that I get to work with real life heroes every day, people who have sacrificed so much for our communities and our country. I get to try to give back by helping them manage and overcome their psychological injuries. It’s a very rewarding job. What attracted me to this role is that I was interested in learning more about trauma treatment. In the beginning, I was nervous about whether the BC OSI Clinic would be a good fit for me because I’d never worked with a military or policing population before. I’m really glad I applied because it has turned out to be a great fit.”
An inspirational moment for Mollie is when she sees client’s work hard in their recovery and have treatment successes.
“I feel lucky to have supportive colleagues. Our job is highly rewarding, but can also be challenging at times, and it’s nice to know you have the support of other clinicians during the harder times,” says Mollie.
She shared one of the perks about her office: “We have dogs everywhere! Many of our clients have service dogs that they bring with them to the clinic. We also have a service dog, Sophie, who belongs to one of our social workers. Since I love animals, I consider the dogs a big perk of the job!” If you want to learn more about opportunities at VCH, click the link in our bio!

  • “I once split my head open wakeboarding and ended up getting staples in the emergency room; it is always interesting to see what being on the other side of healthcare is like,” says Erin, Registered Nurse at Richmond Hospital. “I am a newer nurse and I applied to this position as my first nursing role. I was attracted to acute medicine because it is an amazing place to learn many different skills and about a variety of medical conditions.” Erin really enjoys building relationships with patient’s families: “I find that they really appreciate being able to talk to someone and stay informed about their relative.” “One inspirational moment for me was seeing a patient who was seemingly bed bound pushing themselves in a wheelchair throughout the unit. Although this patient had a tendency to become quickly discouraged, it made my day to see them continuing to make progress.”
Erin feels supported by staff and management at Richmond Hospital: “Whether it’s putting in a Foley catheter, initiating IVs, or inserting a feeding tube, there is always a helping hand to guide and support me when engaging in new procedures.”

  • The incision was made at 8:10 am on June 24th, 1959. The very first operation in the newly constructed Centennial Pavilion (CP) had just taken place (now named the "Leon Judah Blackmore Pavilion.") Vancouver General Hospital opened Centennial Pavilion, a massive cruciform building with over half a million square feet of floor area in the spring of 1959. When opened, it accommodated 504 patients and nearly doubled the number of available operating rooms. To this day, CP continues to be a vital part of hospital operations.

  • “This is one of the friendliest & supportive communities in which I have lived. The draw for me was the ‘Great Bear Rainforest’ – who wouldn’t want to live in a place with an ancient history, kind people, cultural diversity, and a quieter pace and only a few hours away from a major city center by air?” says Sharon, Program Manager, Bella Coola General Hospital. 
Sharon is the Local Hospital Manager for acute care, residential care, emergency services, and administration departments. “I enjoy the fantastic camaraderie & professionalism of all staff and there are excellent leaders in all departments.  Everyone is flexible, knowledgeable, and extremely dedicated to the community and to supporting each other within the demands, challenges & successes that we experience in healthcare.”
She finds Bella Coola to be intriguing & peaceful with supportive people throughout the valley. “What I find amazing is that the community does everything it can to support each other in times of need. People wave, talk to you on the street, and look out for one another. We are very fortunate to have these values in today’s world. The community itself, the natural wonders, and my colleagues are inspirational every day.”
“The ideal type of person who would enjoy living in Bella Coola is someone who is flexible, adaptable, has a sense of adventure, likes the outdoors, participating in a myriad of cultural and community events and enjoys peace and tranquility. You can be as busy as you want to be here – creativity is a great asset. One must appreciate rain showers, green grass, mountains, trees, nature and wild animals,” says Sharon. “I have visited and lived in many countries around the world including the desert of the Middle East for 4 years. After my time there I knew I wanted a change. I needed clean air, mountains, trees, clear blue skies, star gazing opportunities, ocean waters, and animals as well as a place where I could go to be at peace and recharge. I have found that here in Bella Coola. I can travel wherever I want but I can come back ‘home’ to one of the most tranquil and beautiful places in the world.” To explore rural opportunities, visit the link in bio!
