Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) health care workers returning to work: Vitalité Health Network takes stock of the situation

Vitalité Health Network, Saturday, November 6, 2021

The situation is improving across Vitalité Health Network facilities following the gradual return to work of CUPE health care workers. The collaboration, efforts and goodwill of all parties concerned are remarkable.

The Network would like to thank all its health care workers for their tremendous work, their devotion and their professionalism. “They have shown just how much they have patient care at heart, and for that I am very grateful,” indicated Dr. France Desrosiers, President and CEO of the Network. “I am convinced that everyone will be happy to see their co-workers again and to continue to serve the people of New Brunswick,” she added.

Over the next few days, the Network will work on increasing its level of service, namely its capacity to perform surgical procedures.

  • Visitors: For the moment, visits remain prohibited in all hospitals, except for some exceptions that will be allowed on a case-by-case basis for designated support persons.
  • COVID-19 vaccination clinics: Continue to be provided as scheduled. This weekend, clinics are being held in Grand Falls and Moncton today and in Caraquet tomorrow.

The Network would like to thank patients, their families, and the public for being understanding and patient. Our priority remains to provide safe, quality care.
