We are proud to announce that St. Joseph’s Health Care London has been awarded Accreditation with Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada for our recent 2015 review. St. Joseph’s has received this designation for the second consecutive time. This outstanding achievement illustrates St. Joseph’s commitment to quality and excellence across all aspects of health care, from patient safety to staff training and partnering with the community, so we may provide the very best programs and services to our patients and clients.

The accreditation decision an organization receives is based on its performance in three main areas and reflects the organization's degree of success in each area:
  • meeting the requirements embedded in the standards;
  • achieving applicable Required Organizational Practices;*
  • soliciting feedback from their staff on worklife quality and patient safety culture.

A decision of Accredited with Exemplary Standing means an organization has attained the highest level of performance and quality in achieving the majority of required elements in the accreditation program.

At St. Joseph’s, the accreditation process is a continuous effort, bringing our strategic, performance and team efforts together to provide quality care, and supports our quest to realize our vision to earn complete confidence in the care we provide.
