Accountability and Transparency

Welcome to the Accountability section of our website. As part of our commitment to being open and transparent to the communities we serve, this section has been designed to share key information with all our stakeholders.

Recent Government of Ontario legislation has focused efforts on improving quality, accountability and transparency in our health system. In keeping with these improvements and in the spirit of Hamilton Health Science's philosophy of accountability, we are pleased to provide information to the public that is required under the following government acts:

The Broader Public Sector Accountability Act, 2010  The BPSAA establishes new rules and higher accountability standards for hospitals, Local Health Integration Networks and broader public sector organizations. 

The Excellent Care for All Act, 2010 puts patients first by improving the quality and value of the patient experience through the application of evidence-based health care. It will improve health care while ensuring that the system we rely on today is there for future generations. 

The Public Sector Salary Disclosure Act, 1996 requires organizations that receive public funding from the Province of Ontario to disclose annually the names, positions, salaries and total taxable benefits of employees paid $100,000 or more in a calendar year.
