I am pleased to invite you to explore Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare’s 2016 Community Health Bulletin. Like an annual report, the Community Health Bulletin newsletter is dedicated to keeping our communities across the Muskoka and East Parry Sound regions updated on what we’ve been up to at MAHC over the past year, and highlights some of the exceptional work of our teams. MAHC’s success and the outstanding care that we aim to provide are because of the hard work and dedication of our staff and physicians, and Board, Foundation and Auxiliary volunteers. Everything from getting to know our Board of Directors to some of the special projects that support improved quality and patient safety, the 2016 Community Health Bulletin demonstrates that we have a lot to celebrate and be proud of!
It is because of our people that we are achieving our mission to proudly serve our communities and deliver best patient outcomes with high standards and compassion. Through our Strategic Plan, our focus is on five key strategic areas: Quality Care & Safety, Partnerships & Collaboration, Education & Innovation, People, and Sustainable Future. This annual community newsletter showcases some of the achievements we have made on these strategic directions, as well as important initiatives underway over the course of the past year. MAHC is proud to play an active role in the local health care system, working to deliver the very best to our patients every day though safe, high-quality, sustainable care.
