If you think about the founding Sisters, they arrived in Vancouver friendless and penniless. They showed a lot of courage and perseverance to finance and build the original hospitals and sites. Because of that early spirit, Providence tends to recruit people who care about looking after the poor and disenfranchised, and who are committed to providing a high quality of care. The approach to patients and residents is different than I have seen elsewhere.”
