Welcome to St. Joseph’s 2012-2013 Annual Report to the Community. This year, for the first time, our annual report to you is exclusively through our internet site. Here, we provide our full reports, stories and highlights and, very importantly, seek your questions and feedback.
The life and work of St. Joseph’s this past year has been fast-paced and focused. We made good strides in our new strategic plan aimed at strengthening the patient experience and advancing key roles in breast care, complex chronic disease management, and cognitive vitality. Our teams have worked hard to improve performance for patients, families and staff.
The redevelopment of our facilities at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Regional Mental Health Care continue on time and on budget. In fact, tomorrow (June 14) we celebrate the official opening of the new Southwest Centre for Forensic Mental Health Care in Central Elgin.
At the heart of all we do is our vision of earning your complete confidence in the care we provide and making a lasting difference in the quest to live fully. We know this vision means many things to the many patient, student, partner, donor and government groups to which we are accountable as a care, teaching and research organization. The stories you see here reflect our efforts to do all we can to sustain care today and create the hospital of tomorrow.
Please read our performance reports – including the 2013-2014 quality and financial results – and through this site, ask us questions and provide your comments.
We welcome your feedback on our performance over the past year and on our continued quest to earn your confidence in our care. We also encourage you to share your story about care you have received at St. Joseph's. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your interest and for helping us make a lasting difference.
