Pat Zehr has been involved in healthcare for most of her life. She got her start as a candy striper at St. Mary’s Hospital in Kitchener Ontario. After graduating as a registered nurse, she spent seven years working at Stanton Territorial Hospital in Yellowknife and outpost nursing positions in the far north. Those experiences led her to complete a degree in medicine and an OB/GYN residency and embark on a decades long practice in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. A fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and surgeons, Pat is now retired from practicing medicine.


Pat remains a health-and-wellness crusader and is actively involved as a healthcare advocate. Her aim is to be part of the solution by helping friends, family, and others navigate the healthcare system. Pat passionately believes in and supports healthcare workers, noting, “the bottom line is if we don’t have healthy nurses, doctors, paramedics, and good working conditions, we won’t have quality patient care. We have to protect frontline workers and stop trying to do more with less.”

Pat’s love of The Beatles served as a touchstone throughout her life and practice. Their music was a balm to help her deal with the toll of caring for patients in a system stretched to the breaking point. It is Pat’s hope that this book shines a light on the Canadian healthcare system and creates the dialogue needed to facilitate change.

Available at Stone’s Office Supply 529 Queen St. E, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario

Maybe I’m amazed at the way you help me sing my song… Right me when I’m wrong.
