2017 Accreditation Canada Qmentum Accreditation Program
June 8 – Closing the Gap Healthcare (CTG) is honoured to have been awarded its second consecutive “Accreditation with Exemplary Standing” in Accreditation Canada’s 2017 Qmentum Accreditation Program.
The accreditation process involves a rigorous evaluation process that includes external peer surveyors conducting an on-site survey during which they assess a health care organization’s leadership, governance, clinical programs, and services against Accreditation Canada’s requirements for quality and safety. These requirements include national standards of excellence; required safety practices to reduce potential harm; and assessments of the work environment, patient safety culture, governance functioning and patient/client experience.
An “Exemplary” standing confirms that CTG “has attained the highest level of performance, achieving excellence in meeting the requirements of the accreditation program.”
“The accreditation results affirm CTG’s commitment to the provision of patient/client and family-centred, high quality, safe, and effectively managed health care,” says Connie Clerici, CTG’s Chief Executive Officer. “Our second consecutive Exemplary standing, based on 642 of Accreditation Canada’s increasingly stringent requirements, demonstrates that we are dedicated to continuous quality improvement and to achieving patient/client, family and worker satisfaction.”
