I'm Dr. Gillian Kernaghan, and I am pleased to welcome you to the St. Joseph's Health Care, London's family of services in health care, teaching and research.
As your new President and CEO, I am honoured to work with our team to carry on the spirit and legacy of our founders. We are all committed to building on St. Joseph's tradition of compassion, excellence and innovation.
1) You're viewing St. Joseph's new website, which is part of our commitment to serving you better. Through this site, our services are easier to navigate and we have more visible ways to tell you about our performance. The "Improve Your Health" section will continue to grow as we add new content from our experts. If you have an idea for the website or health information you'd like to see, please contact us.
2) St. Joseph's will work to achieve the highest level of performance, transparency and accountability. I am very proud that St. Joseph's was one of the first hospitals in Ontario to receive the prestigious quality workplace award. We also have one of the highest records of patient safety in the province. These successes are due to the excellence of our team... and we are working to do even better.
3) I also want to invite you to share personally in St. Joseph's legacy... through the I Was Born At St. Joseph's website. In May, the perinatal unit will move to London Health Sciences Centre. If you were born or gave birth at St. Joseph's, join us in the send-off by sharing your video, photos and stories - be a part of the legacy of life and love.
I welcome your feedback and ideas about the way St. Joseph's serves you and about our new website. We are committed to the very best health care.
Because we all need St. Joseph's
