“This four year award is a significant achievement for Hotel Dieu Shaver that highlights a hospital-wide commitment to follow best practices and provide high-quality patient care,” says Lynne Pay, Interim CEO of Hotel Dieu Shaver Health and Rehabilitation Centre.  “I would like to thank everyone involved – staff, physicians, board members, patient advisors, volunteers and community partners – for all the time and effort that went into making our accreditation process an immense success.”

The executive summary highlighted how the hospital’s high functioning interdisciplinary teams deliver excellent care, evident in the patient satisfaction survey scores. The Accreditation Report concludes that Hotel Dieu Shaver is led by a competent, dedicated board of directors and a leadership team that has nurtured effective partnerships with community stakeholders. 

“We will be using the information provided in the report to develop our next steps to ensure the hospital is continuously providing quality improvements,” continues Pay.  “Our patients are our number one priority and are central to all decisions made throughout the organization.”
