June 10, 2024 | In:

On May 9, 2024, the Lakeland Centre for Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (LCFASD) received
accreditation following a comprehensive evaluation by surveyors from Accreditation Canada. The survey team spent three days at the center, assessing it against national standards. LCFASD voluntarily undertook this accreditation process to enhance the quality of services offered to their clients.

“Quality and safety are extremely important to everyone at LCFASD,” said Lisa Murphy, Executive Director. “These results showcase our dedication to quality initiatives that enhance the safety of the services we provide to our clients.

Accreditation involves measuring our quality efforts against various components, including standards and Required Organizational Practices. These were evaluated when surveyors met with our staff, clients, and stakeholders.

“We participated in accreditation because we believe that quality and safety are crucial to our clients and their families,” added Lisa Murphy, Executive Director. “We view improving the quality of our care as an ongoing journey, one to which we are fully committed.

For over 55 years, Accreditation Canada has been helping organizations enhance their quality and safety. LCFASD will continue collaborating with Accreditation Canada on this quality journey.    

This accreditation marks a pivotal step in LCFASD’s ongoing journey towards excellence. The center looks forward to continuing its collaboration with Accreditation Canada, ensuring that the highest standards of care are met and upheld for the benefit of its clients and their families.

Join us in celebrating this achievement and the ongoing commitment to quality and safety at LCFASD. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of individuals and families with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.
