Over the next several weeks, we’ll be celebrating those who received South Island MSA Recognition Awards at this year’s Annual General Meeting.
Our award for Collaborative Leadership recognizes members of the medical staff who have partnered with the Health Authority and other organizations to lead change
Dr. Al Buckley and Dr. Sam Williams provided a generous nomination for Dr. Jason Hart.
You can’t tell in this photo, but Dr. Jason Hart has worn two hats for a number of years.
As Medical Director for the Victoria Cancer Centre, he collaborated with BC Cancer to develop new models of care to ensure Island patients receive optimal cancer care, despite both the pandemic and the critical shortage of oncology team members.
As Division Head for Medical Oncology and Hematology, Jason has been an invaluable voice of reason and experience at both Medicine Departmental and Medicine Quality Council meetings. Thanks to his leadership, there have been significant improvements in inpatient oncology care, and the division is secure in its succession planning and renewed structure.
As shared by Dr. Buckley, Dr Hart “exceeds the three As for great physicians- he’s extremely Able, he’s always thoughtful and Affable, and he is always Available.”
With sincere appreciation for Dr. Hart’s his leadership and vision, we are pleased to present him with this Award for Collaborative Leadership.
