CMHA, Thunder Bay Branch (CMHA -TBB) is pleased to announce they have been awarded Accreditation with Exemplary Standing from Accreditation Canada. Accreditation Canada is an independent, not-for-profit organization that has been Canada’s trusted accrediting body for Health Care Organizations for more than 55 years.
Accreditation is a process where organizations measure themselves against national standards of excellence in order to identify what is being done well and what needs improvement. In October 2017 CMHA -TBB welcomed peer surveyors into its organization to evaluate our compliance to these standards at four of its service locations. Accreditation with Exemplary Standing means that CMHA-TBB has met 95% or more of the requirements.
“This award is a testament to the amazing staff who work in this organization,” said Sharon Pitawanakwat, CEO of CMHA -TBB. “This recognition validates that as an organization we are delivering safe, high-quality care to the people we are privileged to serve”.
Accreditation is part of CMHA’s commitment to provide high quality health care services and the organization will undergo this review every four years
