Well, another trip around the sun is finished, and boy, things have changed in the Northern Health (NH) story world! We swapped our old blog site (RIP) and built a b-e-a-utiful new NH Story site, gaining new authors, touching on new subjects, and having a ton of fun in the process!
Such excitement and reflection calls for a review of the past year! We’ve read the analytics and heard the general consensus from our audiences, and without further adieu, here are the top five stories of 2019:
Seeing our employees honoured might be one of our favourite things, which is why we love to see articles like this one! Have a read through to see CEO Cathy Ulrich and NH Board Chair Colleen Nyce present awards to Jennifer Haas, Theresa Healy, Dr. Anthon Meyer, and Gene Saldana in categories connected to each of NH’s core values: empathy, respect, collaboration, and innovation.
