Accreditation is an important part of continuously improving the quality of care we provide for patients and the community. Mackenzie Health is looking forward to its next on-site survey in February 2017. Teams are engaged and working hard to get ready for the survey themed “Journey to Accreditation,” to reiterate that this voluntary peer review is an ongoing journey, not a single moment in time.
Conducted by surveyors from Accreditation Canada, the on-site evaluation assesses Mackenzie Health’s services against national and international standards of excellence and could identify opportunities for improvement. Standards examine all aspects of healthcare, from patient safety and ethics, to staff training and partnering with the community.
