Strategic Plan 2012 - 2017
The Board of Directors of MICs Group of Health Services endorsed an in-depth engagement process with our various publics in order to ensure participation and input from the community regarding setting of strategic priorities for the next five years. Engagement sessions were held with Board and Team Members, MICs Corporate Membership at all three hospitals and residential facilities, community members/residents within the MICs communities, community and strategic health partners. The input received formulated the information within our environmental scan and SWOC/ SWOT analysis.
The Strategic Planning Committee at the retreat took the time to complete a comprehensive review of the information provided at the various engagement forums. This process identified the priority areas of importance for the MICs organization at the individual and integrated community levels. A review of the existing strategic plan was also completed as a result of the identified health services needs and priority areas.
