We are in an era of rising consumer expectations.The public expects and deserves our complete honesty; our public funders demand accountability; and our residents, clients, families and community partners need to feel they can trust us.

We have committed to continuously measure, improve and publicly share the results of our performance. With the help of our 22,000 committed, skilled and compassionate team members across Canada we will continue to deliver on our mission of helping people live better, each day, every day.

I like to think of the high-quality care we deliver on a daily basis as the sum total of our:

  • Passion for our patients and the care we deliver,
  • People who provide the care,
  • The high level of performance our people continuously demonstrate; and
  • The research and business partnerships we develop to improve the way we work.
