October 2017

The Health Minister’s Medal is a competitive, annual provincial award program that recognizes excellent work by health care partners, including patients/family and staff. The recipient of the award is someone who places patients at the centre of the circle of care while promoting value and quality in the health care system.

Winners will be officially recognized at Health Quality Transformation 2017, an annual event hosted by Health Quality Ontario on October 24, 2017.

Congratulations to the 3 nominees from TADH!

Chantal Yu: Chantal is a member of the TADH Patient Experience Advisory Committee. For many years, she sat on volunteer committees and boards, as an advisor and/or fundraiser with organizations such as: Access Better Living, Timmins Empty Bowls, Anti-Hunger Coalition, Timmins Barrier Elimination Action Committee (BEAC), the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and the Municipal Accessibility Advisory Committee.
Leslie Tinney: She is the mother of a young adult, who was a multiple organ donor, and has touched so many lives in our community and in our district. Leslie shared her powerful story of her journey to make the decision to support her son’s wishes as an organ donor after he died, due to complications of a chronic illness. Leslie’s dedication and leadership in advocating for organ donation, as a member of the TADH’s Trillium Gift of Life Organ Donation Committee, are highly valued.

Kathy Dunbabin: As our Patient Engagement Lead, she engages directly with patients and staff daily, in completing real time patient satisfaction surveys and discharge phone calls and following up with leadership and team members to facilitate improvements in care based on patient/family feedback. Kathy is highly recognized for developing and implementing this new role at the hospital.
