Bayshore named one of Canada’s 50 Best managed Companies for seventh consecutive year
Mississauga, ON – February 26, 2013 – Bayshore HealthCare, Canada’s largest national provider of community health care services, is proud to announce it has achieved Platinum Club member status with Canada’s Best Managed Companies program by retaining its Best Managed designation for seven consecutive years. This national distinction recognizes Bayshore’s consistency, commitment and ability to be flexible in a changing marketplace.
“Bayshore is committed to demonstrating innovation and leadership in the Canadian home health care industry. Achieving Platinum Club member status recognizes this commitment and acknowledges our continued success,” said Stuart Cottrelle, President of Bayshore HealthCare “As a company we are dedicated to continuously evolving with society.

Bayshore’s success and recognition as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies rests on four key business principles: a culture of commitment; a diversified business model; a strong national presence; and ensuring its branches are part of the communities they serve. Of these four principles, a culture of commitment has been the biggest factor in the company’s success.
“At Bayshore, the key to our success is the hard work and tremendous dedication of our employees across the country,” says Cottrelle. “Our employees bring the highest levels of innovation, drive and leadership to help the people they serve. They consistently go the extra mile for our clients. It is their passion and unwavering commitment that has truly earned Bayshore Platinum Club member status.”
“Companies that have earned Platinum Club status in Canada’s Best Managed Companies program have shown a strong sense of vision and demonstrated a continued commitment to their corporate values,” said Jon Hountalas, Executive Vice-President, Business Banking, CIBC. “Platinum Club winners are examples of excellence in Canadian business.”
