What is True North?

True North is our strategic plan. It sets one clear direction, guiding the decisions we made, the work we do and where we spend our energy and resources. 


Over the last 20 years, QCH has grown into a highly respected regional healthcare leader – we have grown from 1,300 employees to 2,700. The time is right to appreciate and preserve the core of QCH – our culture – and at the same time look toward our future and envision where we want to be and how we will get there.

True North highlights our mission of delivering high-quality, compassionate, and coordinated care.

It represents our true purpose and direction. We want to move forward together.
