St. Joseph's Care Group Accredited with Exemplary Standing

St. Joseph's Care Group has been awarded Accreditation with Exemplary Standing by Accreditation Canada. To achieve Exemplary Standing, the highest level of Accreditation awarded, an organization must go beyond the requirements of Accreditation Canada and demonstrate excellence in quality improvement in health care.

"For the second time in a row, we have achieved Accreditation with Exemplary Standing," said Tracy Buckler, President and CEO of St. Joseph's Care Group. "The Staff and Management of St. Joseph's Care Group take great pride in delivering safe, high-quality care to the people of Northwestern Ontario, and it is a proud moment when an organization like Accreditation Canada recognizes what we do."

Accreditation Canada is an independent, not-for-profit Canadian organization that assesses health care and social services organizations against standards of excellence. The process of Accreditation is voluntary. It helps health care organizations improve quality and safety by independently assessing organizations against those standards.

Buckler could not be more thrilled. "Accreditation assesses the entire organization from front-line staff and volunteers, to Board members, clients, residents and their families," she said, noting that the on-site Accreditation Surveyors met with client and family representatives specifically to hear firsthand about their care experience. "To be recognized with Exemplary Standing validates the work that we do each and every day as we serve our clients with care, compassion and commitment."
