BC Cancer hosted Accreditation Canada surveyors from April 28 to May 2, 2019.
BC Cancer underwent an onsite survey from April 28 to May 2, 2019 by Accreditation Canada to assess the care provided throughout our organization. Health care accreditation helps identify the strengths and challenges of a health care organization.
Using national standards for quality, safety and best practices in oncologic care, surveyors from Accreditation Canada visited the regional centres in Vancouver
and Prince George
. Teams across BC Cancer worked hard and dedicated countless hours preparing for the survey and this was reflected in our final results and feedback from the surveyors.
We are proud to announce that BC Cancer has successfully achieved ‘Accredited with Exemplary Standing’. This is the highest level of accreditation granted to a health care organization following an assessment of the quality of its services in the context of nationally accepted standards. Receiving ‘Accredited with Exemplary Standing’ demonstrates the tremendous work done here every day for our patients and their families.
The next Accreditation Canada survey for BC Cancer is scheduled for 2023.
