Accreditations and Partnerships
Bayshore has a wide network of accreditations, partners and affiliates.
We work with these organizations to strengthen our relationships and provide additional support to our community. Our accreditations speak to the quality of healthcare services we provide in an increasingly safe environment.
When you see the Accreditation Canada seal, you can be certain that the health care organization is working hard to meet our standards to deliver safe, high-quality care. They do so because better quality means better health.
This standard is based on several quality management principles including a strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement. Using ISO 9001:2015 helps ensure that customers get consistent, good quality products and services.
