Stories of Compassionate Care

Dozens of grateful patients, families and friends have used St-Boniface Hospital Foundation’s Circle of Compassionate Care program to make a donation and recognize outstanding caregivers at St-Boniface Hospital. Here are just a few of the stories the Foundation has received.

“Wow! I was impressed by how all the heart surgery team members (so many!) made the patient (me) feel welcome, safe and informed. They responded expediently, but kindly, during my healing. Plus, follow-up calls to my home after the operation. The coordination and cooperation of so many professionals was amazing! You saved my life!”

– E. Stockmann

“Thanks for being the kind of person who made a difference in my world. Forget injuries, never forget kindness.”

– Susanne Abi-Saleh

“From a diabetes patient: thank you for being there for me. You made a devastating challenge very manageable.”

– Barb Kelly

“The staff at St-Boniface Hospital treat you like you are family. Every step of my recovery, I had staff cheering for me – from housekeeping to porters to clerical staff. Even security gave me a hug.”

– Shawna Forester Smith
