Powell River General Hospital's Endoscopy Team - national endoscopy award

Powell River General Hospital’s Endoscopy Team has recently been awarded a national award by the Canadian Association of Gastroenterology (CAG), one of only a handful issued in Canada so far.

“This award is a great reflection on our Endoscopy Team and well-deserved recognition of the quality of care they provide,” says Powell River Director Pat Townsley.

The CAG award is given to hospital teams as part of the association’s Canada-Global Rating Scale, a patient-centred tool that assesses the quality of endoscopic care. Recipients are recognized for their commitment to continuous quality improvement by their participation in the evaluative process, a system that must be maintained annually.
