Our team is highly proactive and is closely integrated into the fabric of our community. Thanks to its range of initiatives including “jeans Friday”, the company has raised funds for Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.
An active contributor to the Fondation du Center Hospitalier de Granby fundraising campaign, La Clef du Somme boasts a team of volunteers who participate each year in the Dragon Boat Race. The members of this team, aptly named the Insomniacs, go all out and push their boundaries as a team.
The motive to do things does not come from the desire to get prizes, awards or tributes. That said, these are often the rewards all the work done is done.
Over the years, the remarkable evolution and success of La Clef du Sommeil have been noted by the business community.
Since its foundation the company has made its mark at the Gala Génération Avenir 2010 when it ran in three categories: Professional, Owner-run business and Young entrepreneur. The La Clef du sommeil team won in the Professional category at the time.
The same year, it won the title of Regional Laureate in the Quebec Entrepreneurship Competition.
In 2010, 2013 and 2014, at the Distinction Award ceremony hosted by the Chambre de Commerce Haute Yamaska et region, La Clef du Somme was nominated in the New Business category in addition to winning the 2013 Distinction Award in the Best Employee category. The award was presented to a member of our team, Kassandra Dubuc, respiratory therapist.
The following year our founder won the 2014 Distinction Award in the Parent-preneur category.
More recently, as part of the Gala des Orchidées of the Réseau des femmes d’affaires du Québec, Haute-Yamaska section, she won the Women of Exception-Entrepreneur Award in 2016.
Ever since the opening of our clinic in 2010, the quality of our services provided to our patients has been the main concern of our management. Since 2014, the company has aimed to distinguish itself based on its practices by adhering to the standards implemented by our respiratory therapists and management to ensure the highest standard of safe services for patients. We have followed a progressive approach to obtaining accreditation in Canada and we obtained our first accreditation from Accreditation Canada in 2012. After a second audit in 2014, we were accredited with honors because our concern for the excellence of our staff is at the heart of our concerns. We always aim to be a benchmark in Quebec and even in Canada for the quality of our patient care.
On September 19 and 20, 2018, as part of the Qmentum accreditation scheme, La Clef du Sommeil inc. underwent a rigorous evaluation process. More than 289 criteria were evaluated in depth by peers external to the organization which conducted an accreditation visit to assess the organization’s leadership, governance, clinical programs and services based on Accreditation Canada’s quality and patient safety requirements. These requirements are standards of excellence recognised throughout Canada.
We are proud that our expertise has been given an HONORABLE MENTION, which means that 98% of the standards have been met. Only xx other organizations in Canada have managed to achieve this recognition in our sector in 2018.
We follow a process of continuously improving the quality of our services, says our founder Évelyne Desjardins, would like to thank everyone for the trust they have put in a since the outset.
