Public Notice: Huron Perth & Area Residents are Advised that HPA-OHT site visits will take place between April 21 – 26 as part of Accreditation Canada Process

Public Notice (Huron Perth – April 17, 2024) – The Huron Perth & Area Ontario Health Team (HPA-OHT) will host on-site accreditation reviews from April 22 to April 26 as part of a comprehensive Accreditation Canada process. 

During this period, Accreditation Canada will assess a spectrum of our health services, which include a number of our hospitals, primary care clinics, long-term care facilities, home care services, intellectual & disability services and community support services. 

HPA-OHT organizations are committed to delivering culturally respectful, high-standard healthcare founded on principles of collaboration and ongoing enhancement. Participation in the Accreditation Canada program is a crucial part of our strategy to ensure excellence in service delivery and identify opportunities for improvement. 

Understanding Accreditation 

Accreditation Canada has partnered with healthcare and community service organizations for over six decades to foster advancements in quality and safety. The accreditation journey is a continual path of self-improvement, setting the benchmark for excellence and operational enhancement in the health sector. This rigorous process involves matching healthcare services to national standards of excellence to commend strong practices and identify areas for improvement. 

The On-site Accreditation Surveys 

Trained peer surveyors, themselves seasoned healthcare professionals and leaders, conduct the evaluations against national standards. The survey teams will provide a preliminary report to the HPA-OHT and Accreditation Canada, followed by a conclusive report informing our accreditation status for the next four years. 

What Accreditation Means for Our Community 

Accreditation is a seal of quality, indicating a dedication to service quality and adherence to best practices at a national level. It encourages the entire HPA-OHT network, fostering robust teams through better communication, cooperation, and knowledge sharing about leading healthcare practices. The findings from the accreditation surveys will not only spotlight our successes but also guide our continuous quality improvement efforts, ultimately leading to enhanced health and wellness for all residents in Huron Perth and Area. Your health and well-being are our top priority, and this accreditation affirms our unwavering commitment to those we serve.
