The Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA) has released its 2015/16 annual report.
This year, in honour of the ongoing shift to patient-centred, patient-driven care, CKHA chose to share their annual update with the community through the voice of “Susan”.
“Susan’s a fictional character but her letter to update a loved one about mom’s recent hospital stay reflects many things we hear from our patients throughout the year,” CKHA officials stated.
“In fact, last year we documented 373 thank-you cards from grateful patients and their loved ones. These are a welcome opportunity to celebrate our successes and to seek areas to improve our organization and the care we provide. Moreover, they offer a deserving tribute to our entire team’s contribution to making CKHA an exceptional community hospital.”
