Medic Monday Official Proclamation

I had the privilege of attending the official proclamation of Medic Monday, as well as the flag raising, on behalf of Health and Wellness Minister, Randy Delorey, at Grand Parade Square. I stood alongside Mayor Mike Savage, and Deputy Mayor, Tony Mancini.

Every day, Paramedics work at the forefront to provide comfort, and the utmost care, to our communities.

On Medic Monday, the Province would like to recognize these skilled individuals for their service.

Paramedics are extremely collaborative within the healthcare system; With more than 1,200 paramedics responding to roughly 180,000 calls last year.

Their role can fall under:
-Responding to emergencies
-Providing in-home support for palliative care
-Providing care to seniors through the Extended Care Paramedic Program.

Congratulations, and thank you for taking on this selfless job that helps so many people in our communities.
