Rainy River District Victim Services (RRDVSP) volunteer co-ordinator Sue Carlson, left, Riverside Health Care president and CEO Ted Scholten, RRDVSP program manager Peggy Loyie, Riverside Health Care nurse manager Lori Green, Riverside Community Counselling Services community family violence counsellor Jacquee Loerzel, Riverside Health Care director of inpatient and emergency services Julie Cousineau, and Riverside Health Care executive vice-president and COO Henry Gauthier celebrated the official opening of Riverside Community Counselling Services’ new sexual assault and patient care area at La Verendrye General Hospital on Friday morning. The new space provides a private, comfortable area for those who are affected by or dealing with the aftermath of sexual violence in our community. Riverside Community Counselling Services was able to implement the program thanks to a donation from the North West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN).
