As a health system we are committed to Better Health, Better Care, Better Value and Better Teams for Saskatchewan.
Healthy People, Healthy Saskatchewan
We work together to improve our health and well-being. Every day. For everyone.
In July 2018, we embarked on a provincial values consultation process to co-create the organizational values for the SHA. With a clear vision and mission, we had the unique opportunity to engage with employees, physicians, patients, families, communities, Indigenous partners, health providers, external stakeholders and each other, to define and align the core values of our new organization.
After extensive consultation and engagement with over 5,000 key stakeholders and health partners connected to our provincial health system, the Board of Directors has approved the five core values of Safety, Accountability, Respect, Collaboration and Compassion and the commitment to a philosophy of Patient and Family Centred Care for the SHA.
Our commitment to a philosophy of patient and family centred care, is at the heart of everything we do and is the foundation for our values. This philosophy of care is in essence our culture – who we are, the shared purpose that brings us all together and how our patients and families experience care every day. Through meaningful engagement and co-creating mutually beneficial partnerships among employees, physicians, patients, families, clients and residents, together we ensure a seamless health system that supports Healthy People, Healthy Saskatchewan
