We are thrilled to share that HSN has been Accredited with Exemplary Standing by Accreditation Canada.
This is the first time in our history of participating in Accreditation Canada surveys that we have achieved this result and is a direct reflection of the exemplary people who work at Health Sciences North.
The Accreditation Surveyors frequently commented about how impressed they were with our teams. Even in the midst of an unprecedented global pandemic, high occupancy and staffing shortages, surveyors noted that everyone at HSN has shown their commitment to providing safe, quality care and services for patients and families from across Northeastern Ontario.
Canadian hospitals are accredited by Accreditation Canada normally every four years, and through this process the care that we provide at HSN is assessed against evidence-based quality and patient safety standards.
By meeting these standards, we can all be confident that the care we provide is aligned with best practices to keep both our patients and healthcare workers safe.
