Quality Improvement


Quality Improvement Plan


On behalf of the Espanola Regional Hospital and Health Centre (ERHHC), we are extremely pleased to submit our Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) under the Excellent Care for All Act (ECFAA). We are excited to be working in partnership with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Health Quality Ontario, Ontario Health and the Ontario Hospital Association, to establish goals and objectives that will result in the pursuit and achievement of a safe, efficient and high performing, quality healthcare system. 


By reporting to a Quality Committee of the Board and introducing initiatives that were backed by research and best-practices, the ECFAA brought quality improvement to a whole new level – one that facilitated positive change by encouraging hospitals to push the envelope by gradually introducing more indicators, and drawing upon leading-edge practices from across Ontario and beyond. As we continue to work with our Patient Safety indicators, we will be able to better understand our trends and determine the most effective improvement initiatives.
