Building on the Momentum we’ve Created

By Wolf Klassen, Vice President, Program Support
I’m an early riser.
What you may not know is that I typically start off my mornings, in the gym or on my bike. For me, my 5 a.m. workouts are a time to focus and create momentum for the day ahead.
In scientific terms momentum is a “mass in motion,” a force. But in the sense that I’m using it, momentum can also be described as a necessary force for success.
And as I write this, I just received an alert on Twitter telling me that we just picked up another award from the Regional Geriatric Program called the “Patient Voice Award of Excellence.”
This award recognizes that at the heart of all that we do, despite all the noise, we hear is the patient voice, guiding our initiatives and programs.
What an achievement.
This is just one of the many awards we’ve won in recent months. Here are some of the others.
You could say, we’re on a roll…we’re building momentum.
I know this momentum has been building for some time.
And it’s our collective desire to do the “right thing” for our patients that drives this force. The “right thing” means investing in a supportive and safe environment that nurtures both the physical and mental wellbeing of our staff.
I know in the hustle and bustle of the season, we sometimes forget what we’ve accomplished. We need to celebrate our wins and capitalize on the momentum we’ve created.
I’m proud of the achievements we’ve made to make our hospital one of the best places to work. Congrats to you all.
Here are some of the people who’ve helped to create our award-winning hospital.
