Two Halton services achieve top accreditation rating

I’m very proud to share that recently, the Region’s Services for Seniors and the North Halton Mental Health Clinic received accreditation with exemplary standing from one of the leading national accreditation organizations, Accreditation Canada.Creek Way 13

Completing accreditation means that Halton’s programs are measured against national standards of excellence. These standards examine all aspects of health care, from patient safety and ethics, to staff training and partnering with the community. Exemplary standing is the highest level of performance an organization can receive and AC has only given this standing to 20% of those they have surveyed. It’s an incredible achievement and shows our services not only met national standards, but exceeded them.

The high rating from Accreditation Canada is also consistent with the high satisfaction rating we received from Halton residents. In recent polling, 97% of residents indicated they are satisfied with the overall services provided by Halton Region. Another achievement of which I am very proud.
