St. Joseph’s Health Centre launches its new Strategic Directions for 2019-2024

On March 19, 2019, also known as the Feast of St. Joseph’s Day, St. Joseph’s Health Centre and its affiliate organizations, St. Joseph’s Villa, St. Joseph’s Continuing Care Centre and Villa St. Gabriel Villa launched its new strategic Directions for 2019-2024.
“As proud as we are of the past, we’re even more excited about what’s ahead for St. Joseph’s Health Centre. We have a new vision for the next 5 years – Making Lives Matter…compassionate care, innovation and discovery. In order to make lives matter, we will build on the strong tradition of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Sault Ste. Marie – which in essence means we have big shoes to fill.” stated Jo-Anne Palkovits, President and CEO / Administrator.
At St. Joseph’s Health Centre, we see ourselves, as two long-term care homes and a hospital that show leadership in finding fresh solutions to improve care; one that embraces our diverse community, respecting and responding to their needs. We are a hospital that partners effectively with other health care and community organizations so that patients can receive support, when, where and how they need it. We are two long-term care homes that foster quality care, ensuring we provide the best possible care experiences that meet the unique needs of each and every one of our residents. And, we are a place where everyone – our staff, doctors, students and volunteers – are focused on creating positive changes to meet the evolving needs of not only our patients and residents but also of our community.

2019-2024 Strategic Plan

St. Joseph’s Health Centre is looking forward to working with our community partners as we strive to Make Lives Matter – through compassionate care, innovation and discovery.

VSGV Awarded Three-Year Accreditation

Memorandum

On Behalf of the Board of Directors, I wish to take this opportunity to congratulate Villa St. Gabriel Villa staff on being accredited for 3 years by CARF ACCREDITATION, an international accrediting body.

Villa St. Gabriel Villa decided to pursue accreditation because doing so demonstrates that we are accountable for the quality of our programs and services and committed to the satisfaction of the persons we serve. CARF surveyors were on site to review our programs on November 20 and 21, 2014 and December 1 and 2, 2014. The feedback received was very positive.

As a result, Villa St. Gabriel Villa was granted the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded. This is a testament to the significant effort, strong teamwork, and commitment demonstrated by Villa St. Gabriel Villa and St. Joseph’s Health Centre staff members.

Thank you for participation in the accreditation process and for your ongoing commitment to our residents.

Sincerely,

Ehren Baldauf,

Board Chair

Villa St. Gabriel Villa Has a Successful Accreditation Visit!

As you know, two CARF International surveyors visited Villa St. Gabriel Villa on November 20 and 21 as well as December 1 and 2. The purpose of their visit was to observe us in action, review some of our documentation and conduct interviews with our staff members, patient, families and partners. In doing these things, our surveyors were able to evaluate how well we meet specific standards for quality, resident-centred care, governance and administrative practices.

Villa St. Gabriel Villa decided to pursue accreditation because doing so demonstrates that we are accountable for the quality of our programs and services and committed to the satisfaction of the persons we serve.

Thanks to all your hard work, the surveyors gave us top marks for:

  • Villa St. Gabriel Villa working hard to meet the needs of the
  • Francophone community by becoming a French Language designated facility;
  • Having staff with a strong sense of mission;
  • Having active Resident and Family Councils; and
  • Having a welcoming and home-like environment including a bilingual receptionist.

Now that the accreditation visit is over, CARF International will review the findings to make an accreditation decision. They will notify us of their decision by sending us a written report in early January. The written report, in addition to the decision, will highlight our strengths and identify areas for improvement.

Once the report is received, we will share the results with staff, residents, families, partners and the community at large.

Thank you and congratulations on a successful accreditation visit!

Sincerely,

Jo-Anne Palkovits
