At St. Joseph’s, quality improvement is an ongoing priority that helps us enhance patient care, achieve better clinical outcomes and increase patient satisfaction.
Our Quality Improvement Plan provides a meaningful way for us to clearly articulate our accountability to our community, patients and staff and outline our top improvement targets and initiatives for the year. They are also an integral part of our strategic plan.
In 2010 the Ontario Government passed the Excellent Care for All Act. As part of this act, Ontario hospitals and long term care facilities are required to develop and post Quality Improvement Plans using a specific format provided by the Ontario Health Quality Council.
