Stroke Distinction achieved
It is my pleasure to report that the Stroke Program at Toronto Western has been successful in its pursuit of Distinction in Acute Stroke Services (read more about TWH’s quest for stroke distinction
here). This special accolade from Accreditation Canada is reserved for organizations that demonstrate leadership in the delivery of acute stroke care. Over the past year, a dedicated team at TWH has rigorously examined the way we provide these services and implemented a host of new strategies, guidelines and best practices
designed to improve outcomes for our patients.
In addition to nurturing our People and Culture and promoting Operational Excellence, this important initiative is already helping improve the Patient Experience while supporting Caring Safely. These are all corporate priorities at UHN and I’m thrilled that our efforts have been recognized by Accreditation Canada. Congratulations to TWH on this tremendous achievement and my sincere thanks to everyone who participated.
Canadian College of Health Leaders – 2017 National Awards Program
Last week the Canadian College of Health Leaders (CCHL) announced the recipients of their
2017 National Awards program and I am excited to share that UHN is among the recipients. These awards recognize individuals, teams and organizations that are leading health care innovation across the country. UHN received the
3M Health Care Quality Team Award, in the category of Quality Improvement Initiative(s) Within An Organization. This award recognizes the important work that came together to create our Quality Improvement Plan Discharge Summary Program. This program is aimed at improving timeliness of discharge completion and delivery, as well as the quality of documentation. Discharge summary is a critical step in the patient’s journey and this program is helping us put the needs of patients first.
