Surrey installs healthcare appreciation street banners around hospitals

THE critical work of Surrey healthcare workers has been heroic in the fight against COVID-19 and as an extension of its gratitude to them, the City of Surrey on Tuesday installed healthcare appreciation street banners around Surrey Memorial Hospital and Peace Arch Hospital.

“Every night, Surrey residents and staff across our city join the 7 p.m. cheer, as a gesture of appreciation for the sacrifices healthcare workers are making to battle COVID-19 on the frontlines,” said Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum. 

“With the installation of these street banners surrounding Surrey Memorial and Peace Arch Hospitals, our hope is that our nurses, doctors, first responders and paramedics are reminded every day that our community recognizes their dedication and service. Our healthcare workers are among the best in the world, working tirelessly to keep our community healthy and safe, and these banners are a small way of saying thank you.”
