    125 Years of faitH anD caringSt. Josephs Hospital has reached a remarkable mile-stone125 years of faith and caring. On Oct. 15, 1888, the hospital officially opened its doors with 10 beds and a staff of four doctors and three Sisters of St. Joseph. From this mod-est beginning, the hospital would grow and change. Today, it is the cornerstone of what is now St. Josephs Health Care London, one of Canadas leading multispecialty academic health care centres. Then and now, it is a history of which St. Josephs is proud.

    tHe figHt against influenzaThe statistics are staggering. Londons 20122013 influenza season saw 26 deaths, 297 hospitalizations and 472 labora-tory-confirmed cases. To fight against influenza, St. Josephs Health Care London is taking a new direction. In addition to the annual flu vaccination and education campaign of staff, physicians and volunteers, St. Josephs has adopted a new policy. When an influenza outbreak is declared in the com-munity, all non-vaccinated staff, physicians and visitors must wear a mask while in our facilities to prevent the spread of influenza. To view vaccination results at St. Josephs through-out the season, visit sjhc.london.on.ca/our-performance/quality-improvement-plan.

    W ith the holiday season and a brand new year soon upon us, we at St. Josephs have much to be grateful for and even more to look forward to. The past year has been one of change and achievements on our journey to earn complete confidence in the care we provide, and to make a lasting difference in the quest to live fully.

    for St. Josephs Hospital125 years of faith and caring. From humble beginnings, the hospital has grown to become a medical force in Canada and beyond while remaining committed to the values instilled by our founding Sisters of St. Joseph.The year ahead promises to be equally exciting. With the support of the com-

    munity and the dedication of our excellent staff, physicians and volunteers, 2014 will see the opening of our new London mental health facility next to Parkwood Hospital and raising of the bar ever higher in delivery of care for patients and residents across St. Josephs.We could not do so without the generosity of our community that, every year,

    steps up to support our Season of Celebration, which begins Nov. 15.

    diversity, impact and reach of St. Josephs expertise.

    teers, health care partners and donorswe wish you a joyous Christmas and good health for the New Year.
