Niagara Health proudly presented our bold new Purpose, Vision and Values and our first strategic plan today at our Annual General Meeting.

“Niagara Health is entering an era of great opportunity,” says Chair of the Board of Directors John MacDonald. “The inspiration behind our strategic plan is one unifying goal to provide all of our patients, their families, staff, physicians, students, learners and volunteers extraordinary experiences.”

We heard from thousands of people over the last year from inside our organization and all across the region about what matters and the feedback we’ve received has inspired us to imagine a Healthier Niagara.

“We’ve listened and have heard what we’re doing well and what we need to improve on,” says Niagara Health President Dr. Suzanne Johnston. “Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our journey toward a Healthier Niagara. Your participation has been invaluable in the process.”

Our Purpose: Extraordinary Caring. Every Person. Every time.

At Niagara Health, Extraordinary Caring is what our patients, their families, our volunteers, our teams and our community need and deserve. Caring is so much more than care. Both the physical and emotional part of caring is at the heart of our purpose.  Every person. Every time.
