For the third year in a row, TSH has been awarded a Gold Quality Healthcare Workplace Award from the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care for the hospital’s efforts to improve the quality of work-life for staff.
Health care organizations from across the province participate in the Quality Healthcare Workplace Awards, which are meant to raise the bar of excellence for quality health care workplaces. The award has four levels – Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. In addition to winning Gold awards in 2014 and in 2013, TSH previously received a Silver award in 2012.
“TSH is committed to creating a work environment that fosters an innovative, creative, and engaged workforce,” said Rhonda Lewis, Vice President, Human Resources and Patient Relations.
“These awards are not only a testament to this commitment, but also to the compassionate, high quality care delivered to patients and families each and every day by our talented and dedicated staff, physicians, and volunteers.”
Quality Healthcare Workplace Award winners were honoured on November 3, 2015 at the OHA’s HealthAchieve conference.
