Through collaboration with patients, caregivers and people working in healthcare, we turn proven innovations into lasting improvements in all dimensions of healthcare excellence.
Healthcare Excellence Canada focuses on improving care of older adults, bringing care closer to home with safe transitions, and supporting pandemic recovery and resilience – with safety and quality embedded across all our efforts. We’re committed to fostering inclusive and equitable care through meaningful partnerships with different groups, including patients and caregivers, First Nations, Inuit and Métis, healthcare providers and more.
Launched in 2021, Healthcare Excellence Canada brings together the Canadian Patient Safety Institute and Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement. We are an independent, not-for-profit charity funded primarily by Health Canada.
Healthcare Excellence Canada is led by a team of creative changemakers with a wide range of expertise spanning patient safety, quality improvement, health policy, knowledge translation and more. Working together, they inspire and guide our pursuit of excellence.
