In October 2017, Eastern Health was awarded the designation of Accredited with Commendation, one of the highest stamps of approval from Accreditation Canada. The health authority scored a record 97 per cent compliance rate with national standards of excellence in health care.
Eastern Health works hard to provide patients with high-quality services every day. Our voluntary assessment by Accreditation Canada is part of our commitment to improving health care services.
In its report, Accreditation Canada said: “Eastern Health has gone beyond the requirements of the accreditation program and is commended for its commitment to quality improvement.”
President and CEO David Diamond discusses what this means for Eastern Health’s employees and the men, women and children they serve every day.
* Please note that since this interview was recorded, Eastern Health’s standing was upgraded to Accredited with Exemplary Standing, the highest designation awarded by Accreditation Canada.
