Smooth Rock Falls, Monday July 30th, 2007
Dear community members,
As you may already know, this past fall, the hospital team decided to undertake a full strategic planning process for the next three years with the aim of adapting to the recent economic changes and events. The hospital is looking to orient itself, that it may be in accord with the priorities outlined by the Local Health Integration Networks and the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care. At the same time, the hospital wants to acquire the necessary tools to develop and maintain its services, taking into account the geographic, demographic and political realities of both the immediate region and the whole of North-eastern Ontario.
In March of 2007, several members of the community participated in a series of focus groups. These discussions were intended to help identify priorities related to the hospital, its services and the community in general.
As a result, and following a planning retreat, the Smooth Rock Falls Hospital Board of Directors and key employees drafted and adopted the following three statements which henceforth, will define its direction, projects and priorities.
To promote and ensure optimal health care services adapted to our needs.
By encouraging well-being and the undertaking of personal responsibility in one's health, the HSRFH, through its leadership and holistic approach, commits to offering personalized, bilingual services, while taking into account the social and geographical realities of both the community and region.
You, your family, your friends, us, our hospital, our region... healthy together.
