Message from VHA’s
CEO and Board Chair
As we look back on the year 2022, we are inspired by the way VHA’s team members rose to meet the challenges that we faced. The year started with the most challenging wave of COVID-19 – Omicron – which was felt across the health system with a high burden of illness and significantly reduced health human resources capacity. It was no different in home care.

Championing the delivery of client-centred care

"It’s like a necklace…"
The pandemic shone a light on the importance of mental health awareness, and while many felt 2022 was a year of recovery, others continued to live in a state of crisis.
