Shriners Hospitals for Children - Canada named one of Montreal's top employers

MONTREAL, Feb.4, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Shriners Hospitals for Children®Canada is proud to be named one of Montreal's top employers for 2016 by Mediacorp who today released the names of the city's best places to work. This special designation recognizes the hospital as an industry leader in offering an exceptional workplace. 

"Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada is an incredible place to work thanks to our employees, volunteers and the Shriners Fraternity. We are like a close-knit family," says Céline Doray, Hospital Administrator.  "With only 300 employees, you virtually know everyone by name. Thus, when a co-worker needs a little extra help people readily pitch in."

Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada provides specialized orthopaedic care to children from across Canada, the northeastern United States and around the world.  Some of the common conditions treated include:  scoliosis, brittle bone disease, clubfeet, hip dysplasia, leg length discrepancies and cerebral palsy.  Many of the children in our care face significant challenges, yet they remain undaunted and courageous. Their resilience and love of life inspires every employee, doctor and researcher to do everything possible to help these infants, children and teens reach their full potential.

"The hospital is being distinguished as one of Montreal's top employer's thanks in part to its special culture; its generous education and training opportunities; and its exceptional recognition initiatives," says Laurence Steck, Director of Human Resources.  "We are proud of our collegial work environment where every employee can thrive and can achieve their goals."

Now in their new facility, in 2016, the Canada Shriners Hospital will be increasing its activities which will lead the hospital to hire additional staff.
