November 27, 2014

The Middlesex Hospital Alliance (MHA) has earned a 2014 Quality Healthcare Workplace Award (Silver). This prestigious award from the Ontario Hospital Association (OHA) and the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) recognizes MHA’s unwavering commitment to workplace health and wellness.

MHA is privileged to work with employees, volunteers, physicians and board members who realize and support the importance of personal and organizational well-being. “The award is a significant accomplishment for the MHA family as it represents external validation of our commitment to the ongoing development of a healthy workplace,” stated Todd Stepanuik, President & CEO.

The Quality Healthcare Workplace Awards are adjudicated by a panel of quality workplace experts who complete a rigorous assessment process focused on drivers of employee and organizational health. “It is great recognition of our efforts related to health, safety and wellness at MHA”, says Todd Stepanuik. “Having inspired People and Teams is one of our hospitals’ strategic themes, and this award recognizes our ongoing commitment and considerable efforts that go into supporting that objective. I am proud of the entire MHA family who make MHA the quality workplace it is”, highlighted Stepanuik.

“A quality workplace environment touches everyone who steps inside our two great sites, including patients and families”, said Ken Williams, Board Chair.

“This is the second Quality Healthcare Workplace Award that MHA has received. In 2013, MHA was awarded a bronze workplace award. Creating a healthy workplace is a priority for MHA,” Liz Kendall, Director HR confirmed.

The MHA was honoured and the award was presented on November 4, 2014 at OHA’s HealthAchieve Conference in Toronto, and will be publicly displayed at both of the MHA sites.
