QUEENS PARK, TORONTO: This week in the Ontario Legislature, Norman Miller, MPP for Parry Sound-Muskoka recognized West Parry Sound Health Centre for receiving Accreditation Canada’s “Accreditation with Exemplary Standing” for the second year in a row.
Mr. Norman Miller: I’m excited to rise today to celebrate the accomplishments of the West Parry Sound Health Centre. This week, the West Parry Sound Health Centre has been awarded Accreditation Canada’s “accreditation with exemplary standing” for the second time in a row. Accreditation Canada’s criteria balance global best practices with community needs to assess all aspects of a health organization. West Parry Sound Health Centre was compliant with 100% of the required organizational practices, and has a 97.6% compliance rate with over 2,000 accreditation standards.
CEO Donald Sanderson proudly accepted the recognition on behalf of West Parry Sound Health Centre, crediting this award to their team’s commitment to “quality improvement and the delivery of compassionate, patient-centred care.”
The West Parry Sound Health Centre has always been an icon for compassion within the community. They have a long-term-care facility, acute-care programs, six nurse practitioner-led clinics that deliver services to rural communities. They continue to offer innovative health programs, while simultaneously being recognized as a pace-setter hospital for their consecutively balanced budgets.
I want to thank Accreditation Canada for their work maintaining a high standard of care in our health system and offer my congratulations to the front-line team members, physicians, health professionals, volunteers, board members and staff of West Parry Sound Health Centre for this tremendous accomplishment.
