North Wellington Health Care’s commitment to patient care recognized


Mount Forest, ON…In a National Research Corporation Canada (NRCC) report recently released North Wellington Health Care (NWHC) achieved a score in the top 10% of Ontario hospitals for Acute Care Inpatient Experience. The report is based on patient ratings of overall satisfaction and likelihood of patients recommending NWHC to family and friends. The purpose of the survey is to highlight excellent performance based on patient perceptions and to identify those hospitals that may have good practices in place that others may be interested in learning.


“This validation is a reflection of the expertise, care and humanity delivered throughout every North Wellington Health Care department.” boasts Tom Sullivan, Chair of the NWHC Board. “Collaboratively our Staff and Volunteers provide patients with the very best hospital experience. The entire team should be proud of this recognition.”


The full report is available on the NRCC’s website:


North Wellington Health Care delivers high quality rural health care services through two fully-accredited, acute-care hospital sites in Mount Forest and Palmerston. The Corporation currently operates 15 beds at each hospital site, employs 213 staff, 94 professional staff and over 200 dedicated volunteers.
