What is Accreditation?
Accreditation Canada provides independent, third-party assessments of organizations using standards built upon best practices used around the world. The Accreditation process involves all members of the organization, from the frontline staff to the Board of Directors, as well as members of the community, including patients, families and community partners. It allows understanding of how to increase efficiencies, enhance quality and safety and reduce risk.
SLMHC has been an accredited hospital for many years, allowing us to maintain our status as a teaching hospital, as well as demonstrating to the public that we have met standards of excellence. Our first accreditation survey in our new facility was in October 2013, for which we received Accreditation with Commendation. In 2017, we then received Accreditation with Exemplary Standing, which is the highest rank available. Most recently, in 2022, we have once again been Accredited!
We are preparing for our next Accreditation, occurring in June 2026.
