Celebrating our physicians’ career milestones

In Vancouver, we take pride in our world-class physicians and recognize that their dedicated service makes the world of difference for our patients, our organization and our community. At the recent Vancouver Medical Staff Awards, we celebrated 193 such physicians, each marking a milestone service anniversary in 2017.

Dr. Marshall Dahl, president of the Vancouver Medical, Dental & Allied Staff Association, hosted the event on June 12. Celebrants, family members and colleagues filled VGH Paetzold Auditorium close to capacity for a lively occasion honouring the contributions and commitment of our long-service physicians.

Congratulations to our colleagues and VCH-Vancouver’s 2017 Years of Service Award recipients.
