St. Joseph’s Health Care London, which has held the highest designation awarded by Accreditation Canada for the past 12 years, once again received “Accredited with Exemplary Standing,” extending the title to 16 straight years. During the accreditation survey, which occurs approximately every four years, five surveyors from across the country, including a patient surveyor, spent nearly a week visiting St. Joseph’s sites to measure the organization’s performance against a rigorous set of standards. Out of 1,715 criteria, St. Joseph’s met 1,713 (99.9 per cent) – the organization’s best accreditation result to date. In addition, every 'Required Organizational Practice’ (ROP) was met. An ROP is an essential practice that organizations must have in place to enhance patient/client safety and minimize risk. These results were achieved under Accreditation Canada’s new Qmentum Global Program, which includes a more rigorous scoring process and makes the achievement of exemplary standing even more impressive than in previous years. St. Joseph’s was among the first hospitals in Ontario to be measured under these new standards. This survey has once again highlighted St. Joseph’s continued dedication to excellence, our collective devotion to patient and resident care and our commitment to earning the complete confidence in the care we provide.
