QHS Priorities from the CHNA
QHS Key Strategies
Queen’s recognized the importance of strengthening our foundation and transforming our health system to meet the demands of the changing health care environment, achieve our aspirational goals, and fulfill our mission.
Toward that goal, we created six interrelated strategies (listed to the right) that will enable our teams of clinicians to provide culturally sensitive, high-quality, safe and compassionate care in a sustainable manner—where, when, and how our patients want it.
Below are three guidelines of the Queen’s Community Investment Program.
Event or program’s focus should align with at least one QHS key strategy or priority identified from the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).
Requests will be limited to one per quarter, per organization.
Requests will be accepted and reviewed on a quarterly basis.
