Accreditation Canada recently conducted an on-site survey of our organization and we have been affirmed that the Northern Health Region has met the requirements of the accreditation program and has shown a commitment to quality improvement.
The final accreditation review showed that the NHR met 91% of the surveyed criteria.
We are very proud of all of our employees and their commitment to quality improvement. The on-site survey was an excellent learning experience and highlighted the ways in which we can make our services better.
Some general highlights from the report include:
- Successful partnerships with our communities;
- Commitment to quality and safety from the Board level to front line staff;
- Strong foundation built for Patient and Family Centred Care.
The accreditation on-site survey was completed in June 2018 and provided all program requirements continue to be met, we are accredited until the next accreditation survey which will take place in June 2022.
