Mary Ackenhusen | December 16th, 2015

In this edition of Straight Talk I wanted to celebrate 2015 as a successful and pivotal year for Vancouver Coastal Health and congratulate everyone on a job well done. I also took a look forward to what I’m sure will be a challenging year as we move ahead on initiatives like CST, increased capacity for MRIs and the rejuvenation of residential care. I hope you’ll listen and join the discussion by posting your own questions or comments in the comment section below. Thanks for listening!
