Runnymede celebrates renewing its Exemplary Standing (2018-2022) with Accreditation Canada
Runnymede Healthcare Centre is proud to announce that once again, we have achieved the extraordinary: For the second time in a row, we achieved a perfect score and were awarded a four-year Accreditation with Exemplary Standing by Accreditation Canada, the organization that sets the benchmarks for quality and safety in healthcare. Exemplary Standing is the highest designation awarded, and is an exceptionally rare feat among healthcare providers.
Runnymede is committed to continually enhancing our services. That’s why we voluntarily participate in accreditation with Accreditation Canada — to learn what we’re doing well and where we can improve. By having external surveyors assess our services against national standards, we are better able to focus our quality improvement efforts.
Everyone at Runnymede was involved in accreditation, from our clinical staff and volunteers to our senior leadership team and board members. That’s because quality improvement is one of our guiding principles - it’s integrated into our everyday practices.
November 2018’s Accreditation survey result clearly shows that our commitment to quality, safety, and patient-centred care stand out among Canadian healthcare organizations. By meeting every requirement we continue to set Runnymede apart as a healthcare leader well-equipped to meet the needs of our community and take on the growing challenges of the healthcare system as we evolve into a Centre of Excellence.
