The health care practitioners and professional staff at Cascade Medical Clinic and Princeton General Hospital have received the 2016 Award of Excellence from the Rural Coordination Centre of BC for their dedication and service to the residents of Princeton and Area. Dr. Ella Monro and Cherie Whittaker attended the Awards Dinner held on June 9 and received the award on behalf of the entire Princeton Healthcare Team.
The Rural Coordination Centre of BC (RCCbc) is an organization that links the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues with rural physicians, rural communities and the University of British Columbia, working to develop strong relationships between all facets of rural health care. The organization focuses on the coordination of initiatives and projects to bridge gaps between existing rural resources.
Each year, RCCbc and its partners recognize the good work of BC’s rural physicians through the Awards of Excellence in Rural Medicine. The criteria for this year’s award centred on “rural teams whose excellent work has substantially stabilized or improved the health and well-being of the community in the face of challenging situations.” SOHC nominated the Princeton Healthcare Team, believing that they were worthy candidates for this prestigious award.
Congratulations to our team and thank you for the award-winning service you provide to our community!
