We Are IH: Sean Adams

We Are IH: Sean Adams

We Are IH is a new recognition campaign to spotlight our people in a real way – through pictures and stories that allow their authenticity to shine through! Each month, four Interior Health employees or medical staff will be featured through our News@IH website and our weekly In the Loop Roundup email newsletter. 


Sean Adams thrives in challenging and high-pressure situations, so naturally, being the Patient Care Coordinator (PCC) at the High Acuity Response Team (HART) is a position that he excels in. He started his career in Ontario in 2002 in ICU and made the move to Kamloops to work in ICU at Royal Inland Hospital (RIH) in 2012. From there he transitioned into HART in 2014, and most recently he has started as the HART PCC this year. Sean has positively impacted the lives of many. His commitment and hard work were acknowledged by his peers with his nomination for the 2019 Steve Rogers Award. Congrats, Sean!

Born and raised in Southern Ontario, Sean was inspired at an early age to choose a career where he creates change and makes a difference in the lives of others. He loves helping people with his expertise and has provided a lot of value to IH with his wealth of knowledge. His peers would describe him as a dedicated and hardworking person who is always living life to its fullest. Those who had the pleasure of seeing Sean’s sensitive side know how big his heart really is.

When Sean isn’t working he loves to spend his downtime relaxing at home on his hobby farm with his 3 dogs with one more on the way! As a volunteer for the Emergency Medical Response Team at Sun Peaks he hits the slopes regularly. He loves to travel though and he is crossing his fingers that he will be able to jet off on his vacation to Hawaii in 2022 (was supposed to be 2021). We hope you can enjoy your well deserved time off! Thank you for all that you do for the High Acuity Response Team (HART)!

Sean’s nomination of Jasmin Waterman keeps the We Are IH loop going:

Jasmin is a housekeeper and dietary aid at Clearwater Hospital. I pick up in Clearwater quite often and I see Jasmin there on a regular basis. Jasmin is so uplifting and fun. She is super happy all of the time which resonates with everyone that she comes into contact with. If we could all be as spirited as Jasmin the world would truly be a better place, she is such a pleasure to work with. In addition, she is a very hard worker that takes pride in everything that she does in whatever position she is doing that day.
