Crossroads Hospice Society – Emergency Call System

From sponsorship of Crossroads’ annual Treasures of Christmas Gala, to charitable donations toward capital projects, the Foundation has long supported Crossroads’ mission to “put life into days” and to provide care that values life until the moment it ends. In 2014, the Foundation was pleased to provide a $10,000 donation to support Crossroads’ initiative to improve patient and staff safety by updating the emergency call system and provide CCTV and DVR monitoring of entrances and hallways in its palliative care facility.

2016 Medal of Excellence Recipient: Dr. Shelley N. Ross

For the last 30 years, Dr. Shelley Ross has focused her career on family practice medicine with a significant emphasis in obstetrics – delivering close to 300 babies every year. In 2012, Dr. Ross closed her practice to step into the role of President of Doctors of BC. Since then, she has been Co-Chair of the General Practice Services Committee and the Practice Support Program Steering Committee, and is a member of the Shared Care Committee. In addition to her advocacy work through these committees, Dr. Ross continues to serve patients throughout BC doing full-service family practice locums and obstetrics in maternity clinics and hospitals.
