LAMONT HEALTH CARE CENTRE
STRATEGIC PLAN MANAGING OUR FUTURE
1.0 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
Lamont Health Care Centre is a multi-level facility comprising of:
42 Assisted Living Units (Independent Seniors Housing)
The Facility is operated under the auspices of the United Church of Canada and is managed by a Board, incorporated by an Act of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, the Lamont Health Care Centre Act, Chapter 26, April 22, 2010.
The Strategic Plan has been developed based on a planning cycle involving the Board, Supervisors, Physicians, Staff and other Stakeholders taking into consideration Alberta Health Services overall provincial health plan and service agreement with Lamont Health Care Centre Board.
This Plan addresses the following fundamental questions of:
Health Care is a publicly funded complex system which requires a management style that engages all staff, operates within a team environment with an ultimate degree of openness and transparency at all times.
Lamont Health Care Centre is mindful of the complexity of the health environment while operating as a Christian Health Facility under the auspices of the United Church of Canada. The responsibilities and accountability is defined under the “Lamont Health Care Centre Act” as proclaimed by the Legislative Assembly of Alberta on April 22nd, 2010. Accordingly, the organization is influenced by decisions made at the political level and Alberta Health Services who provide the major funding for the operations of this facility.
Change within the Health System is a constant; accordingly, Lamont must always strive to develop strong partnerships with Alberta Health Services, referral hospitals, specialists, specialty clinics and other allied health providers in order to ensure that the needs of the community it serves are met in a responsible and timely manner at all times.
These linkages are important given the limitations the organization faces as a medium size multilevel facility. Expanding the network of referral services ensures that the link with professional groups will be maintained for the benefit of the various publics Lamont serves.
In addition, the Facility, its Board and Staff will continue operating with a focus on stewardship, fiduciary responsibilities while advocating for the health/health services of all citizens including the marginalized, seniors and the disabled.
The Organization must also be prepared to demonstrate to its various publics a commitment to the provision of quality care and the upholding of Best Practice Standards.
Hence, compliance with various Legislative Standards, Infection Prevention and Control, Safety, Risk Management, Accreditation and others will be enshrined into the day to day routines of all disciplines operating within the Facility.
These Standards will assist in addressing the main objectives of goal setting, strategic management and quality improvement.
