Stephen Bird, Chair of the Board of Lanark Renfrew Health & Community
Services is pleased to announce “Lanark Renfrew Health & Community
Services (LRHCS) has been granted full accreditation through the Canadian
Centre for Accreditation (CCA), a national not-for-profit organization which
offers third party accreditation reviews to community based health and social
service organizations in Canada”. Stephen observed that LRHCS “...faces
many challenges in meeting the ongoing needs of people in our rural
communities, and participation in a rigorous accreditation review promotes
excellence and innovation, learning and improvement. This accreditation
review in particular, was quite onerous”. After a full year of preparation that
included an extensive review of all our policies and procedures and surveys of
our Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, community partners and educational
partners, LRHCS played host to a three person review team for four days
which included group interviews with a cross section of staff, managers, the
Board of Directors and the Executive Director, on site observations and
examination of documents, and the tracing of a client journey.
