Sandra Squire - Physiotherapist

In my experience at PHC, nobody says ‘no’ to new ideas. Instead, the question is, ‘how can we make this work?’ So I've felt very supported and encouraged to explore.”

Ian Peters - Physiotherapist

“The public sector allows me to work with patients over a longer period and help them achieve greater progress. In private practice, clients are paying for each visit, so they usually leave as soon they stop feeling pain. As a result, and contrary to what I had expected, I have found I get to use higher level skills more consistently at SPH than in the private clinic, and am able to treat my patients through to the end of their rehab.”

Alison Hoens - Physiotherapist

“Be open to opportunities and possibilities. If you want something that doesn't exist, help to create it for yourself and the profession.Participate and contribute at every opportunity. Pay close attention to your  own experiences with patients so that you can recognize patterns in different patient populations that can inform your decisions as to what is the most appropriate treatment for a particular patient as a specific phase in their disease process/recovery.”

Jami Bennet - Physiotherapist

The singular focus of almost every patient on being able to walk really surprised me. Wanting to walk and use the bathroom independently is a huge motivator for a lot of the patients I’ve worked with in acute care to work with a physio. Helping somebody make it to the toilet isn’t glamorous, but it’s incredibly rewarding to make that progress with them. It usually lays the groundwork of confidence and motivation to get moving.

Kevin Scott - Medical Device Reprocessing Technician

MDRD is more than just cleaning. Most people overlook that we’re also responsible for disassembling, cleaning, inspecting, assembling, and sterilizing all of the medical devices. This requires incredible attention to detail and an in-depth understanding of how each device is operated.”
