Humber River Hospital receives best possible Accreditation Canada survey decision: Accreditation with Exemplary Standing!
On March 26, 2014, Accreditation Canada announced its decision resulting from their latest Accreditation survey at Humber River Hospital: Accreditation with Exemplary Standing. Accreditation with Exemplary Standing is the highest possible Award that can be obtained under the Accreditation Canada survey process for Canadian hospitals.
An independent, not-for-profit organization, Accreditation Canada is the national body charged with evaluating healthcare organizations across Canada, including hospitals, against more than 2,000 comprehensive standards for quality and safety. The hospital scored 98.3%, with a 100% compliance score for all Required Organizational Practices. This result from Accreditation Canada places Humber firmly among the top performers in the country.
The decision letter from Accreditation Canada Vice-President Bernadette MacDonald reads in part: “This achievement demonstrates your organization’s determination and commitment to ongoing quality improvement. We applaud your leadership, staff, physicians and accreditation team members for their efforts and dedication to the provision of safe, quality health services.”
And at our survey debriefing the lead surveyor, Andrew Williams, spoke of the Humber River Hospital team’s “passion and commitment to quality and to doing what is right for patients.”
