“March is Pharmacy Month!  A chance to reflect on the essential role that our pharmacy professionals play in delivering quality care to all our patients. Across Sinai Health, we rely on our pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to ensure that safe and effective medications reach our patients every day – on the front lines and behind the scenes. Through research and education, our staff enthusiastically strive to discover and teach the newest members of our professions.  Thanks to all of our pharmacy professionals at Sinai Health!”

“March 5-11 is social work week in Ontario.  Many social workers enter the profession because they have a strong desire to assist those in need and make our community a better place for all.  At Sinai Health, we have social workers working throughout inpatient, outpatient and community programs providing counselling, adjustment to illness support, referrals to community programs, advocacy and so much more.  Social workers address barriers to help people live better lives and empower people in tough situations. Thank you to Sinai Health social workers for contributing to the health and well-being of our patients and families.”
