Accountability & Transparency

As a publicly-funded hospital in Ontario, HHHS is accountable to our patients and residents, our communities, the Central East Local Health Integration Network and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.  We support the sharing of information about our budget and improvement plans to ensure ongoing transparency and accountability.  We believe this transparency will enhance patient safety and strengthen the public’s confidence in our hospital.
The Accountability section of our website provides information and reports related to our budget and finances including our Hospital Services Accountability Agreement, which every Ontario hospital must sign.
