Hôpital Montfort named recipient of 2020 Award of Excellence in Mental Health and Quality Improvement

March 25, 2020

The Canadian College of Health Leaders is proud to announce that Hôpital Montfort was named recipient of the 2020 Award of Excellence in Mental Health and Quality Improvement.

Over the past few years, Montfort’s management has completely reviewed its approach to mental health in order to offer a French-language therapeutic environment focused on recovery. The change was significant, both for the clinical teams and for the people treated in the Mental Health Program (MHP). Focusing their strategy on recovery allowed them to look at the individual not just as a recipient of services, but rather, as a partner on a team from a recovery perspective. Such a change has required the mobilization of all stakeholders, who are called upon to strengthen their collaborative links, while respecting their differences.

Putting recovery at the forefront of their mental health strategy has required a series of initiatives that contribute to improved care and services. The team responsible for this strategy was fully committed to the implementation of the initiatives, which resulted in an award at the 2019 Merit Awards Gala, a major event that recognizes the excellence of Monfort’s employees.

The Award of Excellence in Mental Health and Quality Improvement honours a hospital, health authority, community based mental health and addictions program/service, or a leader in the field that demonstrates evidence-informed and sustained quality improvements (QI) in the area of mental health and addictions.

The award is sponsored by the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC), an organisation that leads the development and dissemination of innovative programs and tools to support the mental health and wellness of Canadians. Through its unique mandate from the Government of Canada, the MHCC supports federal, provincial, and territorial governments as well as organizations in the implementation of sound public policy.

This award is part of our CCHL National Awards Program.
