Education & Supports

At St. Mary’s, our community of staff, physicians, volunteers, patients and families are at the heart of our hospital. Staff and physicians have access to a number of opportunities for growth and development through our investments in education, wellness, staff engagement and leadership development.

Organizational Development and Employee Wellness

We are committed to building inspiring places to work that empower dedicated and healthy staff by ensuring sustainable support, care and growth opportunities.

With investments in organizational development and employee wellness, we are focused on staff safety, wellness and resilience, the growth and development of our leaders, and ensuring that staff have skill and career development opportunities.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The reach of St. Mary’s is far and we are committed for creating an inclusive and respectful culture that transcends the walls of our hospital. We have committed to creating a diversity and inclusion program in conjunction with St. Joseph’s Health System and the Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion (CCDI). As a CCDI employer partner, our staff and physicians have access to training and education on topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion.

In the near future, St. Mary’s will begin a collaborative consultation process to better understand our strengths and opportunities for ensuring a diverse and inclusive workplace that provides safe, accessible and equitable care for all.
