Collective Agreements

Collective Agreements establish and maintain collective bargaining relations between the Hospital and the workers covered by the agreements. They outline wages, benefits and more. KDH has the following current collective agreements:

Energy Reporting

The Ontario Green Energy Act requires all public agencies, including hospitals, to make public their annual energy consumption and resulting greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, each organization must share an energy conservation and demand management plan outlining how the organization will reduce energy consumption.

The KDH Energy Conservation and Demand Energy Management Plan fulfills the reporting requirements of the Green Energy Act and provides a framework to support  energy and sustainability initiatives at KDH. The Plan addresses energy consumption in the hospital, including the development of a greenhouse gas emissions inventory, benchmarking KDH’s existing energy intensity performance relative to other hospitals, identifying potential energy efficiency projects, and establishing a greenhouse gas emissions reduction target.

Executive Accountability

Compliance Attestation

Our Chief Executive Officer makes an annual Attestation to the Board of Directors in accordance with Section 15 of the Broader Public Sector Accountability Act, 2010 (BPSAA).

Executive Contracts

Appropriate compensation is a key element in attracting and retaining the kind of leaders we need at KDH. Our executive compensation consists of a base salary plus a pay for performance in compliance with the Broader Public Sector Executive Compensation Act, 2014 and the Excellent Care for All Act plus standard employee benefits. No compensation is provided for managing the KDH Health Centre and service on the KDH Foundation. Read our Employment Agreements with our CEO, Frank J. Vassallo, our CFO/VP Operations, Brittany Rivard, our VP Nursing/Clinical Services/CNE, Jennifer Ellis, and our VP Corporate Services, Lana LeClair.

Expense Reporting

Twice a year Kemptville District Hospital reports Executive and Board Member expenses related to travel, meals and hospitality.

Parking Directive Attestation

Hospital Service Accountability Agreement

Every hospital in Ontario is required to negotiate a Hospital Service Accountability Agreement (HSAA) with Ontario Health. The HSAA stipulates accountability and performance obligations for planning, integration and delivery of programs and services. The agreements set out the rights and obligations with respect to funding and the process for planning for funding, each fiscal year. Since KDH operates an Interim Long-Term Care unit, we also sign a Long-Term Care Home Service Accountability Agreement (LSAA).

Quality Improvement Plan

KDH has a comprehensive Quality Management Framework that reflects our commitment to quality improvement. Our Board of Directors regularly monitors the hospital’s performance on more than 25 indicators of quality. Each year we develop a new Quality Improvement Plan (QIP) to drive continuous quality improvement.

Our 2022-2023 QIP is patient-focused, with all three initiatives designed to ensure safe and effective care. Two of the initiatives address specific challenges that patients face – wounds and falls – and address those challenges to make certain that patients receive the best care for their condition. The third initiative addresses the ongoing issue of workplace violence; our efforts in this area are designed to help make KDH a safer place both to work and to receive care.
