The IWK leads the health system priorities set by Government for the provision of health care services for women, children, youth and families grounded in person and family-centered care and actively focused on equity, diversity, inclusion, and reconciliation.
An iterative approach to strategy has enabled IWK Health to be more agile and responsive to current priorities while at the same time ensuring long-term aspirational goals are in place. Our intention is not just to say what we want to do but to also achieve positive impact.
We aspire towards our purpose through continuing work on the four directions set out in our Strategy:
- System leadership, Partnership & Advocacy
- Research & Innovation
- Responsible Stewardship
- Achieving as a High Reliability Organization
The current priorities and initiatives underway supporting our work are listed in The Road Forward. We encourage feedback and input as we move toward future years’ activities.
