Strategic Planning Document

Jul 5, 2016

A Message from the CEO:

I am pleased to share the strategic directions for the RK MacDonald Nursing Home for 2016-2020. These directions were created through a community process and capture the voices of residents, families, staff, Board members, volunteers and other community partners. We were excited to embark on this consultation process and the end result is a reflection of both our past and our collective vision for the future.

The RK MacDonald Nursing Home has been an integral part of the Antigonish Town and County community for over 50 years. We are proud of the legacy of caring and excellence that was built over the life of the organization and we are committed to ensuring excellence into the future. Our core organizational values of compassion, accountability, respect, excellence and safety underpin the care we provide and the relationships we create with residents, families, staff and members of the extended RK MacDonald community. We acknowledge and appreciate the effort of those who have shared in the creation of this legacy and we are proud to be entrusted with the future of the organization.

Our direction over the next four years will be guided by the five strategic directions developed in this plan. We will monitor our progress and report back to the community annually on what we’ve accomplished and the remaining goals for the organization.

Thank you to those who have participated in the creation of this strategic plan. Thank you to the residents and their families and friends, our dedicated staff, volunteers, and RK MacDonald Foundation members, as well as our community partners for your continued support and engagement. I look forward to working with you putting the strategic plan into action.
