3M Health Care Quality Team Awards Presented At NHLC

Saskatoon, SK - The Canadian College of Health Service Executives (CCHSE) and the Canadian Healthcare Association (CHA) hosted the National Healthcare Leadership Conference (NHLC) in Saskatoon, Sask. June 2 to 3 and announced the two winners of the 3M Health Care Quality Team Awards.

CCHSE and CHA selected winners based on their innovation in health care services linking two important concepts: quality and team. North York General Hospital won the Programs and processes in an acute care hospital environment category for “Patient flow: Improving the patient experience.” Capital Health, Edmonton, Alberta received the Programs and processes in a non-acute care hospital environment award for its program “Implementation of supportive living integrated standards.” This is the first year either hospital received a 3M Health Care Quality Team Award.

3M Canada donates a financial contribution to the winning facilities and sponsors six people from each group to attend the leadership conference. Since 1994, when the Canadian College of Health Service Executives and 3M Health Care launched the 3M Health Care Quality Team Awards to encourage and recognize innovation in health services, 28 hospitals have benefited.

3M Health Care, CCHSE and CHA extend their congratulations to the winners and commend all teams who submitted initiatives for consideration this year. For more information, including entry forms for next year's 3M Health Care Quality Team Awards, visit www.cchse.org.
