For Burnaby Hospital

I had a kidney stone removed. The entire surgical team was amazing. They were all very personable and explained things well. When I was moved to recovery, unfortunately I fainted, but was well taken care of. I especially want to acknowledge Nicole in recovery. She managed my care attentively. She was so kind and caring. The hospital is fortunate to have her. Thank you, Nicole.

For Coquitlam COVID-19 Testing and Immunization Centre

This is a wonderful service. I am currently not physically able enough to go through a regular clinic or even a pharmacy, so the drive-through location was a godsend. All the staff were very proficient and friendly. I would give this clinic a 10 out of 10 rating. It would be wonderful if this location could do flu shots in the fall as well. I am a very grateful resident of Coquitlam.

For Royal Columbian Hospital

Brie from labour and delivery was wonderful the whole time I was in her care. I overheard her quietly brief the health care practitioners that entered the room about my post-traumatic stress disorder, noted on my chart, and my need for extra care. I was too focused on my labour to do it myself, so it was great to have her look out for me and it made my experience much better. I wish I could write more because she is just the best.

For Surrey Memorial Hospital

My daughter was in Acute 2 care and then on the fifth floor of the Orange Zone. She received excellent professional care and the staff's compassion and consideration were evident. Thank you all so very much: Dr. Manji, Dr. Grewal, nurse Jason in Acute 2; and Nurses Cora and Sam on the fifth floor, Orange Zone. The fire department and ambulance attendants were fantastic as well. 

I wanted to thank registered nurse Chelan at Surrey Memorial Hospital for her kindness, empathy and outstanding patient care. She really went above and beyond to make me comfortable. I can't say how grateful I am. The triage nurse; Care, Assessment and Treatment Zone staff; and Emergency Department physician were all really great as well. I consider myself lucky to have such great care in my community.
