It’s that time of year again! The HIROC Foundation is excited to announce the successful applicants of our 2021 Safety Grants Program

This year HIROC received outstanding applications from across the country. With so many innovative safety projects on the table, the HIROC Foundation has approved a total of $150,000 to be distributed in 2021. This means we can fund more Subscriber initiatives in 2021 than in previous program years, to help scale innovation even further. 

Congratulations to the following HIROC Subscribers: 

  • Alberta Health Services
  • Central Health – Newfoundland
  • Covenant Health
  • IWK Health

  • Peterborough Regional Health Centre
  • Shared Health – Winnipeg 
  • Sinai Health System

This year’s projects fall under the safety themes of maternal/neonatal harm, death by suicide while under care, patient deterioration, healthcare human resources, and building emergency resilience. 

We look forward to sharing the work of these Subscribers over the next year. Together we can scale and spread innovations like these across the country, and turn the corner on patient safety.
