How we are managed and governed
At Saint Joseph’s Shankill we strive for excellence: Excellence in our care, in our staff, in our services and in our facilities all stemming from good governance.
Our ‘home from home’ philosophy is only possible because of our investment in our models of care, and the overseeing of our quality management systems and strategies and action plans.
We continually audit ourselves, and our services.
These systems and strategies are implemented at Household level and reviewed by our Management Team.
Our Board of Directors are all experienced in governance at the highest level and oversee the running of the organisation and monitor a range of performance indicators including clinical risk management, financial management and HR management.
Saint Joseph’s Shankill is a service of and is supported financially and administratively by Saint John of God Hospital CLG which is governed by Emma Balmaine, Chief Executive and the Board of Directors.
