In September 2015 Hotel Dieu Hospital underwent a rigorous on-site assessment process by Accreditation Canada.  I’m proud to say that Hotel Dieu Hospital was accredited with Exemplary Standing, the highest award possible in recognition of our hard work in building and sustaining a culture of quality, safety and excellence in health care.  It means that our organization surpassed stingent national standards of quality and quality improvement in terms of its governance, clinical leadership, people, processes, information and performance.  The Accreditation Canada report singled out numerous strengths across Hotel Dieu, inlcuding robust quality improvement and patient safety programs, strong faith-based ethical framework and dynamic research program.  And we were praised for the remarkable cleanliness of our hospital and the strong sense that all those who work here care for each other and look after each other.

Hotel Dieu Hospital continues to work with Accreditation Canada to stay ahead of national standards and required organizational practices. Our next accreditation is scheduled for the Fall of 2018.
