St. Joseph’s Regional Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Treatment (SADVT) Program has been recognized for “extraordinary work with abused women” by the London Abused Women’s Centre. The Shine the Light Recognition Award was presented during the city’s Shine the Light on Woman Abuse campaign, which raises awareness of men’s violence against women by turning cities, regions and counties purple for the month of November. Every year during the campaign, a community partner is recognized for excellence in care and support. At St. Joseph’s Hospital, the highly specialized SADVT team provides care for people who have been assaulted at the time of the assault and in the months following. Many care options are available depending on individual choice, the nature of the assault and the time since the assault. St. Joseph’s Hospital is the only facility in the area that conducts forensic examinations associated with an assault.
