Health Care

Many provincial, regional, and local organizations work together to ensure that we have healthy people in healthy communities in our province.

Health Care touches the lives of everyone in our community. There is an amazing variety of health care careers available to anyone who is interested in a career that affects the lives of thousands of people. Whether you work directly with people or work behind the scenes, the work you do will make a difference. Health care is provided in hospitals (often called acute care), in the community (services such as immunization clinics, public health inspections), in continuing care facilities (long term care for the elderly), and in people’s homes (home care). Many people are not aware of how much teamwork goes into providing health care services. When you to go the hospital, you may benefit from the work of physicians, nurses, registration clerks, dieticians, physical therapists, pharmacists, medical imaging technologists, social workers, food service workers, environmental service workers, health information management practitioners, transcriptionists, switchboard operators, and many more. Anyone working in health care can expect personal challenges and opportunities for development. Because health care careers involve a variety of skills, there is a career for everyone. Some jobs emphasize technical and computer skills (laboratory technician, information systems analyst, nuclear medicine technologist), while others emphasize social skills (psychologist, addictions counsellor). There are a number of people who work behind the scenes so that we can provide effective health care: tradespeople (plumbers, electricians, carpenters), managers, accountants, administrative assistants, and human resources professionals.
