Strategic Plan

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Deep River and District Hospital we are pleased to share with you our 2018-2022 Strategic Plan, a key governance responsibility.

Our health care system is undergoing constant change and increasing demands that exceed available resources. We must embrace this situation and how we provide care must be a reflection of these changing circumstances. Building on our strong foundation of dedicated and compassionate staff and physicians, we will continue to find innovative and collaborative ways to manage our resources wisely and at the same time improve the patient experience with ever higher quality outcomes.

Our Strategic Plan establishes a local directive for a strong future course for Deep River and District Hospital and our communities. This framework allows us to think strategically and act with a clear purpose. It helps us set priorities among competing demands for resources—both human and financial. The plan will keep our organization focused on the future while managing day to day operations that bring the priorities to life.

Encompassing the Hospital, the Family Health Team and the Four Seasons Lodge, we have established a new vision—our shared purpose, and a new mission—our service mandate. Our core values guide our decisions and define the way we are committed to perform our work, through our actions and interactions with each other, our patients and our communities.

The development of this Strategic Plan was thorough and productive and involved a collaborative effort with input from many—staff, physicians, volunteers, community partners and patients and their families. We thank all those who participated.


The success and fulfillment of this plan will now require ongoing collaboration and the cooperation of all.

Our Strategic Plan sets a dynamic course for Deep River and District Hospital, the North Renfrew Family Health Team and the Four Seasons Lodge and we look forward to the journey with you.
