Accessibility Policy
 
Headwaters Health Care Centre is committed to the ongoing process of improving access to all of our programs, services, goods and facilities. The hospital is committed to removing barriers to give people with disabilities the same opportunities to access and benefit from services in similar ways as all other patients, clients, and employees. This commitment extends to patients, families, visitors, employees and volunteers with
disabilities.
 
In keeping with the Ontarians for Disabilities Act (ODA 2001), HHCC has prepared an annual accessibility plan that addresses the identification,
removal and prevention of barriers for persons with disabilities. The Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) of Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA 2005) became law in 2011, and now requires hospitals to produce multi-year accessibility plans that include targets and timelines for compliance with the multiple requirements of the IASR, in addition to their ongoing activities around both the Customer Service Standard of AODA and locally identified barriers in by-laws, policies, programs, practices, and services. 
Our plan, policies, and other documents, are available in alternate format, or with communication support, upon request.
