Headwaters Receives Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada

During the week of October 24 - 28, 2016, we welcomed two surveyors from Accreditation Canada to evaluate Headwaters Health Care Centre against over 2,000 standards indicative of quality and safety in health care organizations. The surveyors delivered a debriefing on October 28th to an open forum of clinical and non-clinical staff where they communicated how impressed they were! We are pleased to announce that following the visit, we received the official notification that Headwaters has again been accredited with Exemplary Standing! A special thank you goes to Sandy Critchley, Interim VP, Patient Services, and Lynn Armstrong, Professional Practice Coordinator, whose passion, energy and expertise were a major driving force behind Accreditation preparations this year. As well, thank you to all of our leaders across the organization, and to our Board of Directors, staff, physicians and volunteers for the outstanding effort in preparations and ongoing commitment to high quality and patient-centred care.
