June 14, 2020 – I am so grateful to the healthcare workers that continue to work hours on end. Thank you all so much for your sacrifice. Natalie Boersma

May 16, 2020 – Thank you all for being there on the Front Line, for us all. We have the easy job (to) stay home. You guys have to go and do your job and still not interact with families. This is such an awful time in our experience. We have had others, don’t get me wrong, it’s just (i) personally did not live through them. Our families are learning what it’s like to stress now. Again, thank you for your sacrifices. Kelly Cameron

May 8, 2020 – “I just wanted to say that the ER staff, with all the Covid-19 cases, were extremely kind, caring and attentive when I was brought in with symptoms, of angina in the early hours of Mar 28. All of the staff went out of their way to explain the special procedures to get in and out of the ER for my tests. Everything went so smoothly that one could almost forget that the staff were dealing with a pandemic. I ended up going to Kelowna on Saturday for an angioplasty, returning the same day. I was discharged on the Sunday. To the 911 operator, BCAS, and RIH & Kelowna doctors, nurses and staff, Thank You. Roman Hessel
