On Thursday, March 23, the Board of Directors for Scarborough and Rouge Hospital (SRH) came together for their monthly meeting. This was a productive session which included discussion on important topics related to quality, enhancing access to services, and delivering patient-centred care.
The meeting included a master planning presentation by Rick Gowrie, vice president, capital planning and facilities operations, for SRH. The Board reviewed early stage planning procedures for acute health-care services in Scarborough, and discussed the upcoming Master Planning exercise. Community engagement was identified as a key priority for the Board.
The meeting also focused on SRH’s 2017/18 Quality Improvement Plan (QIP), and change ideas that will strengthen the quality patient experience. A vote to approve the 2017/18 QIP passed unanimously. The plan will be posted next week on the hospital’s website, and will be accompanied by a letter to the community.
The Board discussed financial results following an audit of both legacy organizations. The audits were accepted into official record, marking the final financial statements of Rouge Valley Health System and The Scarborough Hospital.
The next board meeting will take place on Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 4 to 7 p.m. in the Mabel Crolly Boardroom at the Birchmount site. All are welcome to attend.
