Health unit gets top marks in accreditation

CORNWALL – The Eastern Ontario Health Unit has been given an exemplary standing by Accreditation Canada.

The voluntary review measures several performance indicators, including risk prevention planning and health system performance.

Surveyors visited the four EOHU offices last month, where they met and interviewed employees.

“Achieving this outstanding designation once again is a testament to the excellence and leadership of public health services the EOHU provides in our community,” Board of Health chairman Gilles Fournier said.
