Strategic Priorities and Directions

2024-2029 Strategic Priorities and Directions

The 2024-29 Strategic Plan builds on our 75-year legacy of care and connecting communities. We consulted with many people in Alberta and British Columbia – residents and family members, the staff who provide the care and services, managers and senior leaders, volunteers and donors, representatives from our partners in government and health care organizations, Indigenous community Elders, and other partners.

These strategic priorities challenge us to build on our history and address the needs of the health sector tomorrow. With the collective support of all participants, these goals will help guide our efforts over the next five years to successfully fulfill our Mission and secure our future as Good Samaritans.

Quality of Living

We will deliver quality care, encompassing both care and living, with an emphasis on relationships, community, safety, and meaningful living.

Safety, well-being, excellence in service delivery, and alignment with new Continuing Care legislation and regulations will remain key drivers for Good Samaritan. We must also consider the role families play in care and decision-making.

Our People

We will foster a mission-driven workplace that cultivates a collaborative and motivating environment where talented individuals and teams thrive.

We acknowledge the significance of people in the organization’s success. We must “take pride in our culture,” which signifies Good Samaritan’s commitment to service and putting the individual at the centre. While our work concentrates on our workforce, we can’t lose sight of the role of volunteers.

Organizational Sustainability

We will ensure the stability of services and optimize resources with a focus on the future.

We will achieve excellence in sustainability by developing long-term business models, modernizing our infrastructure, and contributing to the broader industry. At the same time, we must remember our roots in caring for those around us.

Organizational Evolution

We will create innovative solutions, and foster a collective effort that drives positive change and sustainable impact in response to the changing needs of the communities we serve.

We must prioritize adaptability to the changing healthcare and housing environments, explore strategic partnerships, and introduce innovative solutions to address future challenges.
