Why choose Northern Health?

Our emergency and critical care staff recently featured in a video to promote their areas and help recruit new talent to Northern Health.

So, what makes Northern Health special?

It’s the people that work here.

As Teneille Holland, Critical Nurse Unit Manager, Emergency Department, states, “The teamwork is amazing. I miss it when I’m not at work and, when I’m at work, it doesn’t feel like work.”

Nurses at Northern Health thrive in this fast-paced environment where they can make a difference to our patients and provide the best possible care to our community.

In addition to a large number of adult patient presentations, our emergency staff see approximately 430 paediatric presentations and 63 neonatal presentations per week.

In the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), our critical care nurses pride themselves on providing exceptional collaborative care servicing approximately 1,600 admissions annually, pre-COVID.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the making of this video – it’s wonderful to be able to share some insight into emergency and critical care nursing at Northern Health.
