For many years in a row, Fraser Health has been recognized as one of BC's Top Employers. Here are some of the reasons why Fraser Health was selected in 2020. You choose your 'why':
 
  • We believe in our people. Our vice president of Employee Experience, Cameron Brine, states: “Specialty education is an important investment we make in our employees, which in turn helps them to provide excellent patient care.” Last year, we sponsored approximately 400 nurses.
  • Fraser Health is British Columbia’s largest and fastest growing health authority. This provides many opportunities for career growth. Our Emergency Nurse, Kalina, shares.
  • Fraser Health’s diverse communities span from major urban centres such as Surrey, New Westminster and Burnaby to the picturesque towns of Chilliwack, Mission and Hope. Our Regional Medical Director, Dr. Barclay, shares.
  • We celebrated a number of employee-lead innovation, research and quality improvement projects: we are using virtual health technology in ground-breaking ways, like using virtual reality headsets to soothe children in our Emergency Departments and using video conferencing to deliver specialist consultations; Royal Columbian Hospital NICU nurses earned national and international attention for nursing innovation grant projects, including a ventilator modification to ensure infants on the machine can receive crucial skin-to-skin care; we opened three new therapeutic sensory rooms in Maple Ridge that support continuity of care for mental health.
 

The best part is we do it together. ‚ÄčWe are Fraser Health together.

“At The Residence in Mission we like to call ourselves ‘Team Awesome’ because we all strive to be awesome at the work we do. I personally appreciate the supportive leadership and collaborative work being done here each and every day.” – Tia, Social Worker.
"I commute nearly three hours every day to work…I do it because I love my job. I am surrounded by staff who work so hard to provide the highest level of care and compassion. I am very proud to be a Fraser Health employee." – Tracy, Speech-Language Pathologist.
“The trauma team is top notch. We show up daily for each other and our patients. We come together to save lives; it’s what we do best,” – Dr. Mohamedali, Anesthesiologist.
