Meet Matthew, a Respiratory Therapist (RT) at Surrey Memorial Hospital. Read on as he tells us why he chose a career as an RT and what he loves most about his job.

“My mom is a health care worker and I look up to her. When I used to visit her at work I would think that it would be nice to have a job where I could also help people. Health care is a great career path – I really enjoy the variety of my job, along with the didactic learning opportunities. There are many professional and interpersonal skills that you can gain in this field. You can always learn and grow if you look for the opportunities.

With [Surrey Memorial Hospital] being a large site, I love that we still have that unified sense of community. A lot of us who work here reside in Surrey as well, and I think we carry that pride with us when we come to work.”
