Accreditation

Covenant Health is committed to quality and patient safety.  One way of demonstrating this commitment is to participate in the accreditation process.  Accreditation Canada Standards and ROPs provide the framework that assists us develop and implement policies, processes, and practices to minimize risk and deliver safe care.  Covenant Health has been awarded “Accredited with Commendation”. This award means that Covenant Health has gone beyond the requirements of the Qmentum accreditation program and is "worthy of praise".

Next accreditation on-site survey will be in October 2019!
