Celebrating Surgical Success
Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region (RQHR) celebrates significant surgical success, as of April 20, 2015 a total of 26,575 patients had surgery in the Region in 2014-15.
In April 2010, approximately 6,000 patients were on the RQHR surgery wait list who had been waiting more than three months for their procedure. As
of March 31, 2015, 182 patients had waited longer than three months without a scheduled surgery date.
As a region, we have reduced the number of patients waiting three months or more for surgeries from approximately 6,000 people to 182 people. This accomplishment
was achieved through the hard work of several teams working together to better the patient experience and subsequently the lives of many. Thank you
to our teams for reaching this milestone.
