We are delighted to announce that St. Mary’s General Hospital has achieved the result of Accredited with Exemplary Standing from our on-site Accreditation survey in June. This is the highest rating for a Canadian hospital.
This significant achievement is the result of our collective commitment to providing our patients with safe, high-quality care. The final decision indicates that St. Mary’s performs above national standards. Accreditation Canada surveyors evaluated 2010 criteria – 133 more than our survey in 2015 – and described our score of 99.5% as exceptional. In fact, 100% of Required Organizational Practices (ROPs) were met.
St. Mary’s continues to be a national and provincial leader in quality and patient satisfaction. Participating in accreditation is a welcomed opportunity to evaluate our care, identify areas for improvement and celebrate our achievements. The final report will be available online and will be shared once it becomes available.
St. Mary’s was recognized for our cardiac and respiratory excellence, our relationships with community partners and for the investments we have made in our people, including the enhancements to health and wellness programs and our LEAN culture of problem solvers.
Thank you to all staff, physicians and volunteers whose hard work and dedication was vital in this process.
