We spoke with Courtney James, a former maternity patient, about her experience with Covenant Health. Courtney thought she was going to the hospital for a regular labour. Immediately after delivering her son, it was very apparent Courtney was in distress. Courtney ended up needed major surgery and a hysterectomy to save her life. Without the emergency intervention and care of the Covenant Health team, Courtney may not have had the opportunity to come home to her family.
We also spoke to Sue Stein, whose husband was a palliative care patient at a Covenant Health facility. As a former volunteer at Covenant Health facilites, Sue knew firsthand the high level of care provided. When her husband Dick was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, Sue knew Covenant Health would be the best place for him. The Covenant team helped Dick and his family find comfort and support in the final stages of his life.
It was an honour to highlight the important and life-saving work of the Covenant Health team. We love seeing the impacts of compassionate care on real patients and their families.
