Patient’s Perspective 2018 - 2022

Developed in partnership with the Sault Area Hospital Patient and Family Advisor Council

My vision is that the people of Sault Area Hospital are skilled at what they do; they ALWAYS
acknowledge me and greet me with a smile. They ask “How can I help?”. They see me and treat me as
a person and not a diagnosis. They are passionate about caring for all people, they enjoy their roles
and are proud to work at the hospital.

The health care system in Algoma looks and feels like one system to me. When I go to different
departments in the hospital or from the hospital to my home or somewhere else in the community,
the transition is seamless and smooth. My health care providers are able to get accurate and up-todate
information about me when and where they need it.

I know that the care I’m getting at SAH is top notch and I only need to travel to other cities for care
when it is in my best interests to do so. Where possible, I receive the care I need at home or
elsewhere in the community, rather than always having to go the hospital.

I can always get information, have my questions answered and I have a voice in my healthcare. The
people at SAH consider and respect my wishes and we make decisions about my treatment together.
