Congratulations Guardian Angels of Almonte General Hospital

The Guardian Angel Program offers you the opportunity to recognize an AGH team member who has touched your life in a significant way.

Shelley Branje
Shelley Branje

Shelley Branje, Ward Clerk. Shelly was nominated by Jack, the husband of a former patient, who had many hours over the last three months of his wife’s life to watch the comings and goings of the staff. While he found there to be many remarkable members of the team, Shelley stood out. “She was the person everyone turned to. She always had the answers or found them out. She arranged everything and did it with a smile.” Jack said. “And that’s why she is my Guardian Angel.” Jack was thrilled to present Shelley with her pin in December 2014. Shelley has been a valued member of the AGH team since Oct 8, 1989.

Many of you have had a member of the AGH team provide you or a loved one with extraordinary care or service in Almonte General Hospital, Fairview Manor or Lanark County Paramedic Service.

We cherish your stories and notes of thanks for the care, comfort and kindness provided by a member of our team. You asked us for a way to offer special acknowledgement to those outstanding physicians, staff, co-workers and volunteers. We listened and created the Guardian Angel Program.

Linda Duncan
Linda Duncan and hospital CEO Mary Wilson-Trider

Linda Duncan, Lead Hand. Linda was nominated by an anonymous donor who is also a co-worker. Linda’s colleague describes her as, “A knowledgeable and fair boss who has always been driven. She is hard-working, always on top of things.” President and CEO Mary Wilson Trider presented Linda with her Guardian Angel pin in December 2014. Linda has been a valued member of the AGH team since June 17, 1977.
