Welcome message from site

Hope is situated in a majestic mountain setting at the east end of the Fraser Valley. The views are stunning and outdoor recreation opportunities limitless. There are scenic trails for all levels of hikers and bikers, pristine lakes, streams and creeks for fishers, golfing, tennis, river rafting, boating, paragliding, water skiing, kite surfing, sailing, kayaking, rock hounding, gold panning, skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, gliding; the choices are endless and all within half an hour’s drive.

Hope offers all the amenities of a large centre, while preserving the life style of a small community. The Hope advantage is its small town atmosphere combined with close proximity to larger urban centres in the Fraser Valley without its high cost of housing. We have it all right here.

Physiotherapist expertise on site (special interests, degrees, certificates, etc.):

We have two PTs with broad generalized knowledge and many years experience in a rural setting. We are the only PT centre in the area and as such function much like a full outpatient clinic (similar to private practice). 50% of our caseload is outpatient with the remaining 50% split between home care, acute, and residential care. All age groups are served.

These types of learning opportunities may be available at this site:

We offer a basic placement in a small, rural hospital providing students with a varied experience in treating a mixed caseload of acute care patients, outpatients, community home visits, and residential care. We see many post-op hip and knee replacement patients, general musculoskeletal, orthopedic injuries/conditions, people with strokes, multi-trauma and general medical conditions including the frail elderly. Onsite educational opportunities are provided on an ongoing basis to staff and open to students.

Possible Interprofessional opportunities at this site:

Opportunity to work with a friendly, hard-working multidisciplinary health care team.
