We are Nationally Accredited


“From www.accreditation.ca Accreditation is one of the most effective ways for health services organizations to regularly and consistently examine and improve the quality of their services.

Health care organizations that participate in Accreditation Canada’s accreditation programs are evaluating their performance against national standards of excellence. These standards examine all aspects of health care, from patient safety and ethics, to staff training and partnering with the community. Health care staff devote time and resources to learn how to improve what they are doing so they can provide the best possible care and service to their patients and clients.

Look for an Accreditation Canada certificate on the walls of the health care organization you visit. The Accreditation Canada certificate shows the organization cares about patient safety and providing quality service. It means the organization was assessed by its peers, met or exceeded national standards of excellence, and continues to strive for high quality health care.
