Campbell River Integrated Health Network receives Kudos!

The Campbell River Integrated Health Network (IHN) offers programs and services for people with Chronic Conditions.  It is an interdisciplinary team consisting of 36 Physicians, 2 Registered Nurses, 1 Registered Dietitian, 1 Registered Social Worker, 1 Medical Office Assistant, and over 2500 clients.  It has been operating out of the Sunshine Wellness Centre in the Campbell River Hospital since 2008.  The team works collaboratively to support individuals; educate and counsel clients to develop autonomy, achieve personal health goals and work towards healthy life style changes, as well as support their emotional well being and quality of life.Recently, Sheila MacKenzie, a Registered Nurse with the Integrated Health Network at the Campbell River Hospital was recognized for her Caring Spirit.  One of the services offered through the IHN is Mindful Meditation; a weekly drop in group that explores the concepts of meditation and mindfulness.   It is obvious to us that Sheila cares for her clients and this was demonstrated throughout the letter we received from her Caring Spirit Donor;"I would also like to thank Doctor Proctor for sending me to the Hospital, where they teach meditation, under the guidance of Sheila MacKenzie....I am learning everything I can about better care for my body, so I thank you for your support."  Mr. HoffIf you would like to learn more about the Campbell River Integrated Health Network and the programs and services that they offer you can visit their website, download their brochure or call 250-850-2195 for more information.The Caring Spirit program allows grateful patients, family members and friends to express their gratitude to the people who were there when they needed them most.  Caring Spirit provides the opportunity to support excellence in patient care at the Campbell River Hospital, while recognizing professional service by a particular individual or health care team.For more information about the Caring Spirit Program contact the Campbell River Hospital Foundation at 250-850-2418 or click here.
