Message from President and CEO
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, our Executive Team, Senior Leadership, and your 13,000 new colleagues I welcome you to our organization. Congratulations on your new position, and thank-you for coming to work with us.
At Eastern Health, our number one priority is providing quality care to our patients, residents and clients. Eastern Health employees share a common vision – Healthy People, Healthy Communities. No matter where you work or what you do, you play an important role in ensuring that the people of our region and our province get the best that we can give, each and every day.
Take a moment to read two important documents: our Statement of Rights and Responsibilities for Clients, Patients and Residents, and our Employee Promise. The first is our responsibility to the people we serve; the second is our relationship with you as an employee of Eastern Health – what you can expect from us, and what we expect of you in return.
Above all, I hope you enjoy the work you do. The kind of work we do here at Eastern Health can never be “just about the pay cheque”. Our employees want to help people and help communities be well. They care about people, and they choose to believe that together, we can accomplish anything we set out to do. They respect their colleagues. They respect their profession. And above all, they respect our patients, residents and clients.
Eastern Health is a busy and exciting place to work. You will be challenged to meet the demands of your new position, but always remember that we hired you because we believe in you and in your abilities.
Enjoy it! Make it fun and make it meaningful. Be a part of your team. And remember, Together, We Can!
