DRYDEN, ONTARIO - The Dryden Regional Health Centre (DRHC) has once again been accredited with exemplary standing - the highest distinction given by Accreditation Canada - after their on-site survey from May 1-3.

"This is a major accomplishment for DRHC, and it speaks to the organization's ongoing commitment to excellence in rural healthcare for patients and their families," says Brock Moore-Bunney, Chair of the Board of Directors. "Despite many challenges facing healthcare since DRHC's last Accreditation Survey in 2019, maintaining Exemplary Standing and achieving a near-perfect score highlights DRHC's dedication to providing high-quality patent care."

DRHC met 1803 standards and 100% of Required Organizational Practices (ROPs), for a final score of 99.9%.

During DRHC's last Accreditation survey in 2019, the Health Centre was also awarded Exemplary Standing, with an overall score of 99.6%.

"The medical staff are very proud to work and have our patients cared for at DRHC. An extremely successful Accreditation such as this gives confidence to us and our patients. Practicing in an environment of quality excellence is fulfilling and ensures retention and recruitment of physician resources," says Dr. Bruce Cook, Chief of Staff at DRHC.

"I am extremely proud of the incredible work that our team does. Ensuring preparedness to meet the rigors of accreditation reflects continual commitment to ensure top quality and safe care." says Doreen Armstrong-Ross, President and Chief Executive Officer at DRHC.

"This is a personal best for DRHC and reflects what we already knew - that our people from frontline staff, physicians, administrative and support staff, the leadership team and the Board- have an unwavering commitment to provide the best quality and safe healthcare services for our communities."
