The Rural Coordination Centre of British Columbia (RCCbc) was honoured to receive a Pacific Northwest (PNW) Spirit Award for Partnership from the PNW Division of Family Practice in October 2020.
The Awards are modelled after the rare and elusive Spirit Bear, which represents healing, strength, peace and harmony. They honour and celebrate individuals or groups that bring the spirit of the Pacific Northwest to their work in promoting community health and wellness.
“RCCbc strives to build strong and trusted collaboration with our partners, so we’re thrilled, honoured and humbled to be recognized for this work,” said Ray Markham, Medical Director, Medicine, with RCCbc. “We congratulate all other Spirit Award recipients for their outstanding work this past year.”
“These awards recognize the dedication, passion, talent, and tireless effort of those working to provide significant contributions to meaningful healthcare initiatives in the north,” said Dr. Huff, Board President with the PNW Division of Family Practice. “We are delighted to recognize the RCCbc with the PNW Spirit Award for Excellence in Partnership in honour of their exemplary partnership work!”
Other recipients of the award for Partnership are the Coast Tsimshian Mobile Primary Care Team, Dr. Gillaume Coetzee, the Houston Primary Care Team, and the Terrace and Smithers OAT Program.
