Glacier View Lodge has been awarded accreditation status

THE STAFF at Glacier View Lodge show off the banner they received for being accredited.

Glacier View Lodge has been awarded accreditation status by Accreditation Canada under its Qmentum program.

AC staff have Glacier View that “only 20 per cent of organizations receive the accreditation decision of ‘Accreditation.’ The majority of organizations (77 per cent) receive ‘Accreditation with Condition.’ “

“Glacier View Lodge’s scores were phenomenal,” said CEO Michael Pontus. “It met 100 per cent of the required organizational practices and 385 out of 389, or 99 per cent, of the Quality/Standard Dimensions.”

The surveyors, in their report, commended Glacier View Lodge for the active engagement of its board, long-service staff and large volunteer base. They noted its strong foundation and roots within the local community and its link to management services from St. Joseph’s General Hospital.

The surveyors were impressed with Glacier View Lodge’s strong focus on person-centred care, its commitment to education and to ongoing staff development.

They recognized the board and organization’s dedication to quality, performance monitoring and the resulting positive reputation Glacier View Lodge enjoys with the wider community.

“The great work that administration and staff do each day has been reinforced with this report,” said Ron Webber, chair of the board. “It is justly deserved and the staff is to be commended for the excellent care they give.”

Glacier View Lodge’s next accreditation will be in 2014.

The full accreditation report will shortly be made available on Glacier View Lodge’s website at www.glacierviewlodge.ca.
