Quality Improvement Plan

Our quality improvement plan (QIP) sets our hospital’s goals and priorities for improving the quality of care that we provide to patients. The plan also outlines how we are going to go about making changes so that we can achieve our goals. This is a key plan for ensuring a quality patient experience.

Quality improvement plans are legislative requirements. The Excellent Care for All Act (2010) is meant to promote a culture of continuous quality improvement in health care, where the needs of patients come first. Through this Act, the Ontario government requires many health care organizations and providers to develop a QIP every year, and make that plan available to the public. This includes all hospitals; as well as primary care organizations, like teams of family doctors and community health centres; Community Care Access Centres that look after home care; and long-term-care homes.

These plans are an opportunity to highlight an organization's commitment to:

  • Delivering high-quality health care;

  • Creating a positive patient experience;

  • Ensuring that it is responsive and accountable to the public;

  • Holding its executive team accountable for its achievement; and

  • Being transparent.
