Message from the Ministers of Health

Every day, thousands of health care professionals work hard to provide the highest quality of care to people living in cities, rural centres and remote communities across Saskatchewan. The geographic diversity of our province is a part of what makes us who we are, but the boundaries that were put in place no longer support access to quality, timely health services. That is why the Ministry of Health is moving forward with a plan to transition the twelve existing Regional Health Authorities into a single Provincial Health Authority – to ensure that patients receive quality, timely health care, regardless of where they live in Saskatchewan.

This does not mean that the health services you depend on will be centralized in another community, or reduced in your own. It means that arbitrary boundaries will no longer get in the way of special care placement and emergency medical services.  It means that integrated systems will enable nurses, physicians and support staff to coordinate their efforts and serve you better. And it means that administrative support will no longer be duplicated where it does not need to be. These are but a few ways that a single Provincial Health Authority will be more responsive to the needs of patients.

As your government, we are committed to working with the health sector – and to working with you – to ensure access to high-quality, timely health services, and a new Provincial Health Authority reflects this commitment.


Honourable Jim Reiter, Minister of Health

Honourable Greg Ottenbreit, Minister Responsible for Rural and Remote Health
