This month, Northern Health celebrated the valuable contribution of our Northern Health Volunteers during National Volunteer Week.
Volunteers play a significant role at Northern Health, such as helping to guide patients and visitors, supporting patients in Emergency and Outpatient Departments, visiting with patients on wards, providing administrative assistance to staff, fundraising and assisting with Northern Health Foundation events and so much more!

In the past year, 93 patients and their families in ICU travelled over 80 kilometres to access our vital services, spending 935 nights away from home. To care for their loved ones, families of ICU patients need to follow them to hospital.
