South Huron Hospital Association (SHHA)

Location: Huron, Ontario

South Huron Hospital Association (SHHA) is the leading health care provider in the Municipality of South Huron and its adjacent communities. The hospital is driven to offer safe and quality service to the local residents. The SHHA recently undertook a strategic planning process to assist the Hospital to determine the goals and initiatives that will be implemented over the next 3 years to address:

  • Its service profile and role with program and service priorities
  • A strong infrastructure for an effective and sustainable organization
  • A clear focus on quality care and risk management within the organization

The process for developing the Strategic Plan was guided by a Steering Committee comprised of representatives of the Board, medical staff, and the senior management team.

The process developed for the project included an internal and external environmental scan and a strategic planning retreat. The environmental scan incorporated an external and internal consultation process, a data review of internal and external material, including current publications of the Ontario Ministry of Health (MOHLTC) and the SW LHIN, and a review of the Hospital’s utilization data.
