The Red Lake Margaret Cochenour Memorial Hospital was Accredited with Exemplary Standing after successfully undergoing an accreditation survey in September 2016. The accreditation status of our organization was extended an additional year from three to four years based on the high performance. This is the highest award attainable from Accreditation Canada.
Accreditation is one of the most effective ways for health services organizations to regularly and consistently examine and improve the quality of their services.
Health care organizations that participate in Accreditation Canada’s accreditation program are evaluated against national standards of excellence. These standards examine all aspects of health care, from patient safety and ethics, to staff training and partnerships with the community.
“Congratulations! This achievement demonstrates your organization’s determination and commitment to ongoing quality improvement. We applaud your leadership, staff, and accreditation team members for their efforts and dedication to the provision of safe, quality health services”. ~ Suzanne Larocque, Chair, Accreditation Decision Committee
