Dr Fred Wilson died in April 2007 at the age of 70. Born in London, England, Dr Wilson received his medical training at King’s College and Westminster Hospital in London before graduating with an MBBS from the University of London.
In 1971, he came to Canada and was chief medical resident, Shaughnessy Military Hospital. Then, as admitting officer he was responsible for two wards until Shaughnessy Hospital closed in 1985.
Dr Wilson worked for Veterans Affairs Canada for over 20 years (1985 to 2005), serving as their senior district medical officer. His deep commitment to meet the needs of the veterans earned him the respect of veterans and co-workers alike.
From 1985 to 2006, Dr Wilson pursued private practice in Vancouver. He worked alongside Drs Murray Baird and George Walsh for many years. As well, for nearly 25 years (1982 to 2006) Dr Wilson was the physician for long-term residents, first at Taylor Manor, then at the newer facility, Adanac Park Lodge.
Dr Wilson was known for his clinical expertise, especially his knowledge and skills in the area of rehabilitation. It was this knowledge that allowed him to smooth the road to recovery for so many. He showed exemplary dedication to his patients, and for those in true need, things were never “too much trouble.” A highly ethical man, Dr Wilson was discrete, careful, unassuming, yet definitive in action.
His career was an excellent example of fine leadership and professionalism. Fred is missed deeply by his long-time friend and wife, Maria, as well as by his many colleagues and the patients he served so dedicatedly for many years.
