#SpiritofYR: Recognizing our York Region health care heroes

“Words simply cannot express the respect and appreciation we have for York Region’s Paramedic and Seniors Services staff. We are grateful for your unwavering commitment to providing essential health care and support services to the community every day.”

These are the words featured on a series of #SpiritofYR banners that were recently dropped off at York Region’s two long-term care homes (Newmarket Health Centre and Maple Health Centre) and at our Paramedic Services’ headquarters.

The banners, which feature photos of some of our amazing front-line staff, are meant to provide a reminder to our colleagues: we know you’re there, and it is probably very hard to be there right now, but we want you to know from the bottom of our hearts we are thinking about you and appreciate everything you’re doing.

We continue to celebrate and offer our sincere and heartfelt thanks to all of our front-line staff for their dedication and commitment in helping to keep our residents and communities safe and functioning during this difficult time.
