Noojmowin Teg Health Centre Achieves CCA Accreditation

Noojmowin Teg Health Centre is pleased to announce they have been awarded a four year accreditation by the Canadian Centre of Accreditation (CCA). The hard work, professionalism and dedication of the staff and Board of Directors are clearly reflected in this significant achievement.

Accreditation is a process that provides assurance from a respected third-party that the accredited organization meets commonly accepted standards for good governance, management and excellence in service provision. For Noojmowin Teg, it is one way that we demonstrate to our clients and funders that we are operating responsibly and providing responsive and quality services.

“We wish to acknowledge and commend all Noojmowin Teg staff and board for your time and effort in preparing for the CCA Accreditation,” says Noojmowin Teg Board Chair Ogimaa Kwe Linda Debassige. “To be accredited means we have undergone an extensive internal and external review process that measures our practices against sector and industry standards, and ensuring the continued high quality of wholistic care is being provided to our community members.”

“One of the key benefits of participating in CCA’s accreditation program is that it promotes an ongoing culture of learning and quality improvement throughout the organization,” said Barbara Wiktoroicz, Executive Director at the Canadian Centre for Accreditation. “By choosing to go through the CCA accreditation process, Noojmowin Teg Health Centre is demonstrating its accountability to the communities it serves, and its commitment to providing the highest quality of programs and services”.

“We are particularly proud to hear that the CCA noted the integration of traditional healing is a strength of Noojmowin Teg, and a key factor in the provision of wholistic and culturally responsive care for our community members, added Ogimaa Kwe. “The Board of Directors wish to express our gratitude for the hard work, dedication and commitment that the team clearly demonstrates, not just during accreditation, but each day within your respective roles within Noojmowin Teg.”
