Hospital Seeks Community Input in Shaping Strategic Plan
Input Will Help Determine Priorities and Build a Strategic Plan for the Next Three Years
During the month of July, the North Bay Regional Health Centre (NBHRC) Board of Directors together with its Senior Leadership, are looking to the community for help in shaping the Health Centre’s next strategic plan.
President and CEO Paul Heinrich says they are asking patients, families and community members to participate in a short online survey. “Early and on-going community involvement will ensure we create a strategic plan that is responsive to, and reflective of, our community’s needs,” says Heinrich.
Heinrich explains a strategic plan defines an organization’s directions and priorities, with a focus on the future. “Strategic planning is a necessary part of any organization’s management tasks and it demonstrates responsible and accountable leadership. It is an expectation of the NBRHC Board of Directors, the Local Health Integration Network and Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care that the organization maintains a current strategic plan.”
The strategic planning exercise not only articulates where the organization is going and the actions needed to make progress, but also how it will know if it is successful. A strategic plan will continue to help NBRHC better serve the needs of our community and district.
To participate in the survey, visit our website at www.nbrhc.on.ca and the survey is available in both English and French. If you participate before July 22, you will be entered to win a pair of weekend passes to Summer in the Park.
