Following an Accreditation Canada survey disseminated last June, I am happy to report on behalf of Ottawa Public Health (OPH) that a very important milestone has been achieved.
Upon review, OPH’s accreditation designation has been modified from Accredited with Commendation to Accredited with Exemplary Standing, which is the highest possible level of accreditation, given exclusively to organizations that go beyond the requirements of Accreditation Canada and demonstrate excellence in quality improvement.
As Chair of the Board of Health, this is exemplary news as it indicates the high level of service that Ottawa Public Health has and will continue to provide to Ottawa residents throughout the years.
I would like to thank each and every one of the Ottawa Public Health staff for this accomplishment. I hope that this will be a positive motivation to carry on with their excellent work and hope that even greater things can be achieved in the future.
