SUDBURY – It is a health care organization that runs a rehabilitation hospital and two long-term-care homes in Greater Sudbury and has supported generations of Cambrian College students.

For its efforts, St. Joseph’s Health Centre in Sudbury is this year’s recipient of the Cambrian College Employer Award of Distinction.

The Award recognizes an organization or company that has demonstrated exemplary support for Cambrian, its students, and graduates.

“St. Joseph’s Health Centre has been one of our anchor community partners for decades and it is very deserving of the Employer Award of Distinction,” says Renee Scott, Cambrian’s Director of Recruitment and Student Success. “Over the years, St. Joseph’s Health Centre has accommodated hundreds of our students on placement, in programs from Health Sciences to Community Services to Business and IT. They host our students and hire our graduates. We are very honoured to select St. Joseph’s Health Centre as this year’s
recipient.”

St. Joseph’s received the award at this year’s Cambrian College Career Fair Conference. Accepting the award on behalf of St. Joseph’s was President and CEO, Kari Gervais.

“We have always felt passionate about our duty to educate the next generation of caregivers in a way that promotes our mission of caring for the whole person – body, mind, and spirit, and in alignment with our values of Dignity, Excellence, Service and Integrity,” says Kari Gervais. “We have been very fortunate to find a likeminded organization in Cambrian College. We value our long-standing relationship and their dedication to ensuring students have meaningful and positive placement experiences. We owe our success to partnerships like these, and to the amazing work happening at the frontlines of our organization where our staff deliver compassionate care and service to our residents and patients, and mentorship to our students.”

St. Joseph’s Health Centre operates the St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre, a rehabilitation hospital in Sudbury. It also administers St. Joseph’s Villa and St. Gabriel’s Villa, two long-term care homes in Sudbury. From 1950 to 2010, St. Joseph’s operated the Sudbury General Hospital, before transitioning to
rehabilitation and long-term care.

The Giving Tree 2022

The Giving Tree

The Christmas season here at St. Joseph’s Health here has begun once again.

COVID-19 has made the financial climate challenging for some this year. Along with hanging lights and tinsel come an opportunity to give to those in need.

The Spiritual and Religious Care Dept. is sponsoring an initiative on behalf of SJHC. We encourage anyone involved with the organization to consider giving to our community and staff.

This year we will be able to give in two different ways:

1. The Giving Tree will be in the Lobby. Once again, we are decorating the tree with tags you may take to purchase pantry item(s) and return to the boxes under the tree. The deadline to bring in your items is Thursday, December 15th, at noon, when we deliver them to the charities. This deadline will give the charities plenty of time to sort and give to the appropriate individuals and families before Christmas.

2. This Virtual Giving Tree on our website. You can give a financial donation – by designating which site you want to go to SJV, CCC or VSGV. The money gathered at each location will provide gift cards to some of our staff that require assistance.
