Four decades of support


by Jane Adams

Next week, the WDMH team will bid a fond farewell to Connie McInnes.

Connie has been supporting WDMH teams for 41 years. In fact, Connie has provided clerical support in almost every area of the hospital – from Admitting, to Physiotherapy, to Emergency, to Diagnostic Imaging, to Central Booking, and finally to Day Surgery!

“I’m pretty easy going, and I like to go with the flow,” says Connie. “When I look back, I don’t know where the time has gone.” Born and raised in South Mountain, Connie joined the WDMH team Four decades of support right out of high school after completing a co-op
placement at the hospital.

“I actually got the job before I finished my session,” she remembers. “That was a long time ago!”

Connie says her WDMH family has meant a lot. “I’ve had some real trials in my life, and they have been wonderful to me. They are like my second family and WDMH is my second home.”

She has no retirement plan, other than “not to come to work”! She will enjoy not having to get up for 6 am shifts, and plans to spend more time with her grandchildren.
Enjoy every minute, Connie!
