Working with our Patients!

In partnership with our patients and families, the Englehart and Kirkland District Hospitals have established a Patient Experience Advisory Committee.  The role of the Patient Experience Advisor is to ensure that patient and family centred care is provided in a fully accessible environment that promotes healing, ensures dignity and instills trust. Patient Experience Advisors contribute ideas and suggestions that will enhance patient and public involvement in health services planning and decision-making so that the community has a voice in the services and hospital policies that affect their lives.  The Patient Advisors will advise the CEO, Gary Sims, in a manner that is helpful to others in the communities to keep the patient and family as a focal point of our hospitals.


To date, Patient Advisors have participated in Quality Improvement Plan annual planning, re-development of Rights and Responsibilities of Patients and Visitors, Patient’s Declaration of Values, Emergency Room Renovations and Accessible Patient bathrooms at the Englehart District Hospital and the creation of a Patient and Family Feedback brochure. 

If you are interested in becoming a Patient Experience Advisor, please contact Cindy Honeyborne at 705-544-2301 ext. 5236 or 705-567-5251 ext. 3202 for more information.
