One year after beginning operations, the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) is better positioned than ever to build a health system that truly works for patients, families and residents and achieve its vision of Healthy People, Healthy Saskatchewan.
“December 4, 2017, is not the day we amalgamated, it is the day we came together to combine our strengths,” CEO of Saskatchewan Health Authority Scott Livingstone said.
As one of Saskatchewan’s largest employers, the move from 12 regional health authorities to a single entity will continue for years to come. Still, the first year has seen many important milestones, including:
“There is so much to look forward to as our organization continues to grow,” Livingstone said. “Connecting research, clinical evidence and innovation with front‐line providers will facilitate new ways of improving care across Saskatchewan – ways that include local voices and better co-ordination of services across regions and programs. That is the promise of a truly integrated health system – locally delivered and provincially strengthened.”
SaskHealth, SHA’s annual report to the community, is a publication intended to reflect upon SHA’s first year in operations, including key milestones, organizational facts and stories from around the province.
