Message from Dr. Falconer, QCH CEO

When I became a physician more than 30 years ago, I certainly could not have anticipated how profoundly the past year’s pandemic would affect us all. Both personally and professionally, it has reminded me of the extraordinary resilience that healthcare workers exhibit in their chosen career path. Our team has worked tirelessly to save lives and keep our community safe and healthy while providing exceptional care.

Their bravery, compassion and courage has truly been inspirational. Your phenomenal generosity through continued financial support, gifts of personal protective equipment, donations of food and messages of encouragement have lifted our spirits daily and I thank you.

The resilience of our team and our community throughout this pandemic is making us hopeful for our future, as we collaborate with healthcare partners, donors and the government to continue to build, expand and improve healthcare for west Ottawa. Together we truly can build a healthy and vibrant community. #QCHStrong

Stay safe and please remain diligent so we can all be together in-person, soon.

Dr. Andrew Falconer,
President & CEO, Queensway Carleton Hospital
