In 1999, our hospital became the first institution in Canada to receive Baby-Friendly accreditation. This accreditation was renewed in 2004 while our CLSCs received their first accreditation in 2005. The process for a third accreditation is under way. The Baby-Friendly Initiative (BFI) benefits both babies who are and babies who are not breastfed.
The caregiving environment is one of warmth and of respect for everyone's values. Our mission is to support parents in their role. The birthing pavilion offers a unique room concept: the delivery, hospital stay, and rooming-in all take place in the same room - 24/7. The installations facilitate the presence of the father or of a significant other both day and night.
