The Strategic Plan is guided by the organization’s mission, vision and values. These core elements provide Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (CKHA) with a clear understanding of what it does (Mission), what it aims to be (Vision) and the principles of how the CKHA Team will behave in executing the strategy (Values).


 Together, Advancing Compassionate, Quality Care


 An Exceptional Community Hospital Setting Standards – Exceeding Expectations


 Teamwork, Trust, Respect, Accountability, Compassion, Knowledge

With a clear understanding of all that the organization is today and what it strives to be in the future, CKHA’s four strategic pillars provide a road map to deliver on its goals and priorities in the coming years. This work is grounded and supported by the leadership of the Board of Directors. Together, these elements form CKHA’s Strategic Plan.
