NYGH Accredited with Exemplary Standing, meeting 99.8% of Standards

December 14, 2020

North York General Hospital (NYGH) has just achieved Accreditation Canada’s’ highest level of achievement, Exemplary Standing. The voluntary Accreditation Canada survey is done every two to four years in hospitals and other health organizations to assess performance against national standards of health care excellence.

NYGH achieved a 99.8% score which means that, of the 2,529 criteria evaluated in October 2020, only four were identified as areas for improvement. We are particularly proud of this achievement during the global pandemic.

The surveyors highlighted many areas of excellence including NYGH’s strong connection with the community, our partnerships with patients and families, and the organization’s relentless focus on quality improvement. 

As NYGH moves ahead with our bold 2020-2025 Strategic Plan, Thinking Beyond, people will continue to come first in everyone that we do.
