Toronto (June 3, 2004) - In its second accreditation survey, Toronto Rehab has once again been awarded the highest three-year accreditation standing from the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation (CCHSA). A team of five surveyors met with 10 Accreditation Teams and 120-plus staff, volunteers, and patients from April 25th - 29th to see how the hospital measures up to nationally established quality standards.
The five surveyors noted Toronto Rehab's progress in implementing recommendations from its last survey in 2001, and praised the hospital for making those "...the object of meticulous attention." Gilles Lanteigne, Associate Executive Director of the Canadian Council of Health Services Accreditation (CCHSA) and leader of the accreditation survey team, set the tone for this final report at the survey debrief in April when he said that, "Toronto Rehab's progress since the last survey is impressive&there has been tremendous follow-up on the last report. Toronto Rehab is an example of how the accreditation process can service as a valuable change-management tool."
The final report also noted that Toronto Rehab's quality improvement program is "well integrated within the structure of the organization and links with the overall vision, mission and strategic directions."
"It's motivating to be put under a microscope by external reviewers and receive feedback that we're doing well against national quality standards," says Elaine Aimone, Director of Quality & Utilization, and accreditation coordinator.
