Exceptional care, inspired by you!

A new QHC strategic plan was launched in January 2012 to provide a solid foundation for every patient experience and each decision we need to make at Quinte Health Care over the next five years. It will ensure we are working towards a common vision and that we have the right strategies in place to accomplish it.

While our mission explains why QHC exists, our new vision and values define what our communities and staff want QHC to be. The four strategic directions and eight priorities outlined in this plan will help us to achieve this vision over the next five years. They will be used to create tactical plans, focus our projects and help us make decisions on how to allocate our limited resources. The strategic directions will also ensure we are building on the strengths of each of our four hospitals and determining how QHC can best work with our partners to meet community needs.
