The Dryden Regional Health Centre has gone gold.

Local hospital staff travelled to Toronto last week to receive the Ontario Hospital Association’s Gold Level Quality Healthcare Workplace Award.

The award is a measure of meeting provincial efficiency-related performance goals.

“The (hospital) remains focused on promoting and advancing an exceptional and safe work environment for everyone,” said chief executive officer, Wade Petranik in a release. “We’re very proud and pleased to be recognized for the work we’re doing and our continuous commitment to workplace health and wellness.”

Having achieved the silver designation earlier this year, the hospital has its sights set on the highest level: platinum.

“We’re committed to investing in our leaders, replicating the things we do well and accelerating our performance,” Petranik said. “We know that when we’re happy, providing meaningful work and knowing we’re making a difference, our patients are receiving the best care. Most importantly, that’s our goal. We remain focused on building confidence in the care we provide and ensuring the best patient experience.”
