Interior Health employees can redeem the offer by presenting their employee ID at the ticket window.
“Our teams at Interior Health have been going above and beyond providing care to our patients, their families and the communities we serve over the last few years. Our workers have been and remain dedicated to their communities and providing quality care,” Danielle Cameron, Interior Health executive director of clinical operations for Central Okanagan, said in the release.
“It means a lot to our workers when they see the community rally behind them in appreciation of their hard work and care that they’ve been providing in over the last couple of years. We appreciate the ongoing support and recognition for Interior Health employees that Big White resort continues to show.”
