Spiritual Care and CPE Students featured 

Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre’s Spiritual Care Team was the focus of a recent TV story. CTV Barrie recently did a brief segment on spiritual care in the hospital during a pandemic and gave a shout out to the CPE students at RVH. Certified Member Catherine Ruiz-Gomar (pictured here between CPE students Jessica Danyluk (left) and Sajida Gangaton (right) was interviewed about the way in which Spiritual Care staff are helping to connect patients with families during the pandemic.
