Pictured above: Steve Wong, Medical Resident St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton

Even during this past seemingly endless winter our Medical Resident, Steve Wong devotedly cycled to work each day. “I cycle all year round and even during this year’s massive snow storm in March, the St. Joe’s north entrance was the only street ploughed in all of Hamilton, Kudos to St. Joe’s!”

 St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton is celebrating wellness throughout Bike Month as we encourage active living through our Employee Wellness Program that promotes healthy living for your mind, body and spirit. Second year Internal Medicine Resident, Steve Wong loves cycling to work. “I especially like cycling to work in Hamilton because of the hills,” says Steve. “Some may think that’s the opposite of what you’d expect, but it’s a great extra bit of exercise in the morning to go up the hill to St. Joe’s West 5th Campus.”

Living an active lifestyle helps Steve improve his health and overall wellbeing. “Cycling to and from work helps me get in my weekly cardio exercise despite having a busy resident work schedule,” states Steve. “I’m also very much awake and am able to skip my morning coffee after a quick sprint up the hill!”

St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton provides accessible bicycle rack parking spaces at each of its three Campuses. “What's great is that St. Joe’s is focusing on improving its infrastructure for cyclist’s and small steps of increasing visibility and access is starting,” says Steve.

Steve represented St. Joe’s on Bike to Work Day at Gore Park to help celebrate Hamilton as an active and cycling community. We are committed to developing a wellness culture within the St. Joe’s community to inspire our employee’s to live a healthy lifestyle with work life balance.
