Striving for excellence through Accreditation

Each year since 2014-15, we have collaborated with our partners at the Central West CCAC and Headwaters to develop annual joint Quality Improvement Plans (QIP) and Annual Business Plans (ABP) to better reflect our integrated approach to care. Now, as a natural extension of our existing partnership, we’re combining our individual Accreditation cycles into one aligned process.

Accreditation Canada is an independent non-profit organization that helps health service organizations examine and enhance the quality of care they provide. Every four years we open our doors to Accreditation Canada to demonstrate our commitment to patient safety and the delivery of high-quality patient care.

Over the past year, we’ve prepared for our survey by identifying any gaps and developing action plans to ensure we are knowledgeable and at the forefront of quality practices and standards outlined by Accreditation Canada.

Our regional approach to Accreditation, a first in Ontario, builds on our commitment to working collaboratively to the benefit of patients and families in the communities we serve. We’re looking forward to achieving the highest possible designation – Accredited with Exemplary Standing – once again!
