What does a century teach you? That possibilities are endless.



    Saint Elizabeth Health Care is 100 years old! Join us in celebrating our
    continuing journey. TOGETHER, anything is possible.

    MARKHAM, ON, Jan. 30 /CNW/ - Celebrities such as Shirley Douglas, a
Feast, circus acts...sounds like one crazy night! Try one amazing year! Saint
Elizabeth Health Care is celebrating its 100th Anniversary and we want
everyone to come along!
    It all started back in 1908 with only four nurses. What would eventually
become known as Saint Elizabeth Health Care was officially open for service.
By the 1920s, making their way to clients' homes on foot or by streetcar,
Saint Elizabeth nurses were delivering more than 10,000 visits per year.
    Today an award-winning organization and not-for-profit leader, Saint
Elizabeth Health Care employs nearly 4,000 multidisciplinary staff, delivers
3.3 million visits a year, shares its knowledge nationally and internationally
through consultation and web-based knowledge products and services, and is the
number one provider of home and community care in Ontario.
    Community health care has seen many changes in the past century and the
need for our work continues to grow. Whether we're pioneering new programs,
testing the latest technologies, shaping health care policy or developing
better ways to deliver care, one thing has remained the same:

    "For 100 years, Saint Elizabeth Health Care has been empowering people to
    take charge of their own health care and well being," says president and
    CEO, Shirlee Sharkey. "We won't be changing that."

    The truth is someday, people will lead us to a new place for health care,
a place where urgent priorities like wait times and access to care will be
transformed. We call that place home and community care, but some might just
choose to call it their living room.

    100 years of Saint Elizabeth Health Care.... It's the kind of care that
will, quite simply, amaze you.
