What are we deciding?

We are now in our 6th year of building a more engaged medical staff culture at Providence Health Care through PHC-PASS and Facility Engagement.

Together, we we have come a long way to create a collective, respected voice of influence for patient care and our workplace.

But we still have more work to do to build on our progress, sustain our work, and achieve a truly meaningful voice in health authority decision making.

We can’t do everything, so we are asking physicians help prioritize activities for engagement moving forward.

The results of these member consultations will be used by the PHC Physicans & Surgeons Society (PHC PASS) to create a sustainability plan and budget to be presented to a 2023 MSA meeting for all members to vote on.
