Accreditation Canada provides national and international health and social service organizations with a voluntary, external peer review to assess the quality of our services based on standards of excellence. Accreditation Canada's programs and guidance have been helping organizations strive for excellence for more than 50 years.
In 2014 the Blind River District Health Centre received the highest accreditation level - Accredited with Exemplary Standing. The organization and its three sites received a four-year accreditation (to June 2018).
Our strategy is to monitor our continuous quality improvement (CQI) in all departments to ensure that we are making changes and setting new benchmarks based on our CQI initatives.
"Since 1958, Accreditation Canada has been committed to improving quality and safety in health services through accreditation. In keeping with this mandate, Accreditation Canada introduced a new accreditation program called Qmentum in 2008. Based on the latest research and evidence and extensive feedback from clients, surveys, board members and staff, Qmentum emphasizes health system performance, risk prevention planning, client safety, performance measurement and governance."
