Accreditation site survey success
Thank you and congratulations.
During the week of October 15 we learned from our Accreditation Canada Site Survey Team that West Parry Sound Health Centre had met 100 percent of the Required Organizational Practices (ROPs) established by our national accrediting body as the foundational requirements necessary for the successful delivery of safe quality patient-centred care. In addition to that significant accomplishment, we achieved a 97.6 percent compliance rate on the 2,231 standards/quality dimensions that are necessary to earn the distinction of being ‘accredited’ by Accreditation Canada, a globally recognized leader in health system evaluation.
