On July 12, 2016 Joseph Brant Hospital (JBH) received special commendation from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MOHLTC) for outstanding Emergency Department (ED) performance.
Through resourcefulness, adaptability and collaboration, JBH has shown the greatest progress in the 90th percentile ED Length of Stay (LOS) for all patients within the Medium-Volume Hospital Group; improving a remarkable 18.6 percent between 2014 and 2015.
During 2015/16 JBH implemented a new model of care in the ED, aimed at improving services and decreasing wait times. Since adopting the new model, the hospital has seen a month-over-month improvement in bringing it within reach of provincial targets.
The Hospital would like to recognize and thank all staff, physicians, and JBH team members for their hard work and ongoing efforts to improve processes and the quality of care at JBH.
