The sizzle and scent of burgers permeated the air Friday in the courtyard of the Patient Care Centre at Royal Jubilee Hospital.
“It’s something small, everybody works so hard here, this is just a fun way to show appreciation,” says organizer Irena Bryan, with Island Health. “This is the second year. We couldn’t do it without Save-on-Foods, they jumped on board again this year.”
Save-on-Foods staff from the Fort and Foul Bay store served up burgers and cake to thousands of Island Health staff at a special staff appreciation barbecue at RJH.
“We want the staff to meet our upper executive,” Bryan said. “This is a great way for them to come out and have that face-to-face.”
It was one of several Island Health staff appreciation barbecues across the Island sponsored by Save-on-Foods.
