Join the Community

Do you remember when you first decided to become a health care professional? How you imagined your relationship with clients? Did you envision closeness and the chance to make a difference in peoples lives? Too often, hospital staff are pulled in so many directions they don’t have the time to really get to know their patients. For many, this inability to spend quality time with patients is frustrating and at odds with why they entered healthcare. For some, Community, Home Care, or Public Health is the solution.
