Focus on quality

Inherent in our mission is a calling to provide the highest quality of care and service, striving to uphold our values and ethical integrity in every interaction with patients, residents, clients, colleagues and families. This patient-centred and holistic approach ensures patients, residents and families are actively engaged in the care they receive, helping them to make informed decisions so they can heal and be well – body, mind and soul. A focus on safety and quality encourages all staff to do their part for the well-being of their patients and themselves. We are proud of our record in the annual flu campaign. Last year, 79 per cent of our staff protected themselves, their patients and their families by getting the flu shot. We are diligent stewards of our resources; using them wisely to provide quality, relationship-centred care for all our patients and residents. Covenant Health consistently exceeds our service requirements as a provider and meets or surpasses Canadian and provincial standards for quality care. We use important processes, like accreditation through Accreditation Canada, to verify our levels of quality and build a culture of continuous improvement and engagement, participating with those they serve with compassion and humanity.
