Healthy Opportunities

Meet Val. Val is a registered nurse on our surgical unit who enjoys cycling to work. “Cycling keeps me physically fit so I can get through my shifts, and it helps me to cope with the stressful and emotional parts of my line of work,” she says. Val stays healthy so she can be there when patients need her the most. Will you be there for her?

We have a unique ask of our community: Are you or is your organization interested in championing a project to support healthy opportunities for Hospital employees like Val? This could be a meaningful opportunity to collaborate with partners, rally your employees and apply creativity to bring together the required pieces for a new, secure bike shelter at our Hospital. It would mean that more employees, like Val, could confidently cycle to work as a way to maintain good physical and mental health.

We’d love to hear from you! Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre invites Expressions of Interest (EOI) for a community champion to help lead a secure bicycle shelter project at our Hospital.

Interested community members and organizations should request our Expression of Interest documents by submitting an email request to our Hospital’s Purchasing Department at with the subject line ‘Expression of Interest No.: 18-44 Document Request’. Respondents that wish to visit our Hospital to collect more information for a response to the EOI (i.e. reviewing site conditions) may reach out to the EOI contact to make arrangements.
