Strategy & Action

Here for You When You Need Us

St. Joseph's Care Group is proud to continue providing client-centred care in a way that is sustainable and meets the needs of the people that we serve: we are Here for You When You Need Us. Our role is to deliver high quality services in addictions and mental health, rehabilitative care, and seniors’ health, and to support our local and regional partners in those areas.

As we advance our vision of becoming a leader in client-centred care, we plan through the lens of Quality, Safety and Risk. Our Strategic Plan 2020-2024 will focus on four key Strategic Priorities:

Here for Our Clients

To address unmet needs through the provision of quality services, we will:

  • Ensure clients receive safe and culturally sensitive care.
  • Engage clients and their families in their care and in organizational planning.
  • Improve transitions in care.
Here for Our People

To support staff, physicians and volunteers to live our values, we will:

  • Enhance quality of work life.
  • Keep staff, physicians and volunteers safe and well at work.
  • Promote a culture of diversity and inclusion.
Here for Our Partners

To transform the healthcare system, we will:

  • Be a collaborative partner leading change in our healthcare environment.
Here for Our Future

To ensure continued organizational sustainability, we will:

  • Achieve and sustain compliance in our long-term care homes.
  • Maintain financial sustainability.
  • Proactively plan for health system changes.

Strategic Plan

Planning is an essential component of success in these complex times. With this in mind, developing a Strategic Plan for St. Joseph's Care Group (SJCG) was an organizational goal - one that we embarked on with enthusiasm.

With guidance from Ogichidaa Onaakonigewin, the Elders Advisory Council, we have embarked on the second of our Walking with Humility plans entitled Looking to the Southern Direction. Over the two years of the plan, Looking to the Southern Direction focuses on ensuring clients receive safe and culturally sensitive care and will support our staff, physicians and volunteers to work in the spirit of reconciliation, upholding the rights of Indigenous Peoples in an environment that is free from racism and discrimination. Our actions will focus on six key areas:

  • Integration of Indigenous Knowledge & Healing Practices
  • Cultural Humility as a Journey
  • Prioritizing Indigenous Health
  • Continued Engagement in Indigenous Research & Evaluation
  • Indigenous Leadership & Governance
  • Communications
  • A Healing Way Forward
