The underlying principles of SAH/Board are based on our Vision, Mission and Values. The vision statement is quite powerful: Trusted Partner. Outstanding Care. We are not alone in providing outstanding care in Algoma. There are other stakeholders.
The mission statement: “Exceptional people working together to provide outstanding care in Algoma” dictates the philosophy of how we operate and serves as the basis for SAH Strategic Plan 2018- 2022, a major document, formulated in 2018. Click here to review SAH’s Strategic Plan summary.
The Strategic Plan gives direction (road map) to the Board and SeniorLeadership Team. It is revisited each year, to assess if the plan needs tweaking to reﬂect any changing ﬁnancial and/or environmental conditions.
Along with the Mission and Strategic Plan, SAH Values (iCcare), play a signiﬁcant role. The Board considers the SAH Values in its decisions and actions taken. The values are incorporated into the iCcare logo, where iCcare is an acronym, listing SAH values: Integrity, Compassion, Collaboration and Partnership, Accountability, Respect and Excellence.
The iCcare Values are the basis for establishing the “culture” of SAH. It’s how we treat our patients and each other.
As you walk around SAH, take notice of the iCcare logo incorporated in many places especially on clothing worn by our employees. The employees have embraced the value system of the hospital which, again, creates a “values-based culture” at SAH.
