Hospital earns highest accreditation standing

Published on

Bluewater Health has earned “exemplary standing” from Accreditation Canada, the organization that sets health-care standards in quality and safety.

The hospital met or exceeded 2,421 national quality standards and all 30 required organizational practices to achieve a score of 99.6%, the highest in its history.

A survey team spent five days touring the Sarnia and Petrolia sites meeting with staff, doctors, patients and focus groups.

The team noted Bluewater has made great progress at engaging patients and their families, collaborating internally, improving patient safety, professional development, and governance and leadership.

The accreditation is good until 2023.
