Saskatchewan Health Authority CEO Announced

Released on August 23, 2017

Scott Livingstone to Lead New Provincial Health Authority

Health Minister Jim Reiter, along with Rural and Remote Health Minister Greg Ottenbreit, are pleased to announce Scott Livingstone has been named Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the new Saskatchewan Health Authority (RHA).

“Scott Livingstone is an innovative, strategic leader who shares our goal of one provincial health authority that is focused on better co-ordination of health services across Saskatchewan,” Reiter said.  “Scott is uniquely qualified to lead the formation of the new organization, with a wealth of experience in the Saskatchewan health system as a pharmacist and as CEO of two provincial health organizations.”

Since April 2010, Livingstone has led the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency (SCA) as President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO).  Previously, he served as CEO of the Saskatchewan Health Information Network (now eHealth Saskatchewan).

“Scott is passionate about health care, and brings a strong patient focus to this new role,” Saskatchewan Health Authority Board Chair Dick Carter said.  “The Board of Directors is looking forward to working with Scott as we lead transformation across the health care system.”

Livingstone will take on the formal role of CEO when The Provincial Health Authority Act is proclaimed and the Saskatchewan Health Authority is officially established.  He will immediately begin to play a key role in helping to organize and build the new organization.

“I am excited and humbled by the opportunity to work with more than 40,000 dedicated health care providers and employees across the province as we build a new organization,” Saskatchewan Health Authority CEO Scott Livingstone said.  “My immediate focus will be working with the board on in-depth organizational planning, determining a launch date and recruiting a senior leadership team, to ensure we have a seamless transition on the first day of operations.”

The 12 current Regional Health Authority CEOs will continue to lead the day-to-day operations of the RHAs until the Saskatchewan Health Authority launches.  That date is still being determined, but is anticipated to occur in late fall 2017.
