Accreditation is an ongoing cycle that occurs every four years and involves an external peer review process by Accreditation Canada to assess and help improve the services we provide to our patients and families based on standards of excellence. Accreditation is an important means of regularly evaluating the services we provide to ensure we continue to deliver the best possible care to Maritime women, children, youth and families. Following the most recent on-site survey by Accreditation Canada, in May 2011, the IWK Health Centre has been Accredited with Exemplary Standing. This is the highest standing that can be granted to organizations assessed by Accreditation Canada.
