Leadership will provide guidance during amalgamation

We are getting closer to day one of the new Saskatchewan Health Authority. As we continue this journey, key leaders are being announced and working groups are coming together to complete important work for day one and post day one operations.


Your local senior leadership is still here and we are committed to sharing information with you. We will also continue to provide guidance as we transition and amalgamate to one health authority. We will continue to support you and escalate issues for the new organization. Day-to-day operations will continue many of your local committee and working groups will still function. We all need to stay committed to zero waits, zero harm and a zero deficit. That is our priority and our organization’s values will continue. With those values, our region has strived to be a good community partner.

As we work through the transformation of the new Saskatchewan Health Authority, we are also working on transforming the annual United Way Giving Campaign for Regina and area. On Oct. 25, the region kicked off the 2017 campaign with the theme "Do you know what your donation looks like? It looks like me."

Take a minute and watch this short video on how your donation impacts our community, and then consider giving. For only a few dollars a month, you can change the lives of those around you. Your donation may just help someone you love.Click here to download the pledge form and this year's campaign poster.
