Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH)-Vancouver is home to talented and world-renowned physicians who have dedicated their careers to patient care and medical advancement. Nearly 200 of our esteemed physicians reached career milestones in 2018 and were recently celebrated at the annual Vancouver Medical Staff Awards on June 18. 

Hosted by Dr. Simon Rabkin, president of the Vancouver Medical, Dental & Allied Staff Association, celebrants, family members and colleagues filled VGH Paetzold Auditorium close to capacity for a lively occasion honouring the contributions and commitment of our long-service physicians.
