Bayshore Home Health named one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies for fifth consecutive year

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 23 /CNW/ - Bayshore Home Health, Canada's largest provider of home and community health services, has been named one of Canada's Best Managed Companies for 2010. It qualified as a winner in 2006 and 2009 and met rigorous standards to requalify in 2007, 2008 and 2010 to maintain its status as a Best Managed Company.

"Winning this award for five straight years recognizes the leadership role Bayshore Home Health is playing in home health care across Canada," says Stuart Cottrelle, president of Bayshore Home Health. "As our society changes, our company is evolving by offering more services that allow people to take care of their health in the comfort of their own homes."

Bayshore's success and recognition as one of Canada's Best Managed Companies rests on four key business principles: a culture of commitment; a diversified business model; a strong national presence; and ensuring its branches are part of the communities they serve. Of these four principles, a culture of commitment has been the biggest factor in the company's success.

"Every day Bayshore employees from Victoria to Halifax demonstrate the highest levels of innovation, drive and leadership," says Cottrelle. "They consistently go the extra mile for our clients. This award really belongs to all our staff who are passionate about what they do and are continually offering new ideas and approaches to make Bayshore the very best company it can be."

"We would like to congratulate Bayshore Home health and its entire workforce. Achieving Canada's highest level of Canadian business excellence takes a united effort and we are privileged to acknowledge such a strong team," said John Hughes, Partner, Private Company Services, Deloitte.

2010 winners of the Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies award, along with Requalified and Platinum Club members will be honoured at the annual Best Managed gala in Toronto on March 29, 2011. On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading edge business issues that are key to the success of today's business leaders.
