Who We Are

Share This Page

At Niagara Health, our people are our most valuable resource. Our staff, physicians and volunteers total an amazing 6,000 people, all committed to providing extraordinary caring at each of our hospitals. 

Through a wide range of programs and initiatives, we seek to make the experience of working or volunteering at our hospitals as good as it can be.

OUR PURPOSE Extraordinary Caring. Every Person. Every Time.

At Niagara Health, Extraordinary Caring is what our patients, their families, our volunteers, our teams, and our community need and deserve. Caring is so much more than care. Both the physical and emotional part of caring is at the heart of our purpose. 

We know that the most advanced equipment in the world isn’t enough, it takes more to put a smile on a lonely face or warm the spirit of someone fighting overwhelming odds. It takes a personal and genuine commitment to caring, a true belief that we can really make a difference in people’s lives. Caring is about attitudes, behaviours and actions - not only for our patients and their families, but also for each other as care providers and team members. It includes attentive listening, being respectful and sensitive, providing comfort, being patient and more. It’s why we take the time to say hello, to stop and listen, to be kind to one another. Why we give a little extra care and attention when it’s needed most. 

This is our community. And in the face of every person, we see reflections of our own families – our sons and daughters, parents and grandparents.

Extraordinary Caring. Every Person. Every Time. That’s exactly what we’re working so hard to do.
