“This past year has been a pivotal year for healthcare in Surrey” says Harp Dhillon, Chair of the Surrey Hospitals Foundation Board of Directors. “Working with government, health care professionals, community members, and leaders who raised and addressed concerns; we turned a pivotal corner to help Surrey Memorial Hospital stand tall—a testament to the power of community.
“A culture is strong when people work together—for each other. A culture is weak when people work against each other—for themselves. Success is a team sport.” This wisdom encapsulates the fibre of the honest, authentic, and humble nature of Ajay Patel, President and CEO of Vancouver Community College (VCC).
