20 Years & Counting!

July 05, 2023

2023 marks the 20th Anniversary for the Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance (HPHA). Some of us have been with the HPHA since its formation, many have joined since. In this time all of us have had the same goal, to provide the highest quality care and support we can to those we serve. We have done this, day in, day out.

The creation of the HPHA took a lot of courage. The Boards of Directors of our four hospital sites made the determination that collectively we would be stronger if we joined together, if we created a larger workforce and if we looked at service delivery through a regional lens. Lots of water has gone under the bridge since that time however, we have always stayed focused on doing what is right by our Team, our communities and those we serve.

We have witnessed significant change over the 20 years of the HPHA and can expect more changes moving forward. The reality that is health care today is challenging, compounded significantly by the past three years of the pandemic. Despite this reality, we have continued to excel and will do so as we look to the future. I can say this with confidence as I know the HPHA Team.  I know how compassionate everyone is, how resilient everyone is and how kind everyone is.

It seems like 20 years has passed in the blink of an eye. During that blink tens of thousands of people have benefitted because our Team shows up and provides exceptional care. It has been a privilege showing up with you. I hope as we all reflect on this anniversary we do so with pride and with a confident look toward the future.
