Section 10 of The Regional Health Services Act allows the Minister to designate all, or part, of a facility owned by a regional health authority or a health care.
The Facility Designation Regulations include provisions that:
a) allow the minister to designate all or part of a facility owned by a regional health authority or a health care organization to one of the five categories: addiction treatment centres, health centres, hospitals (and the hospital subcategories: community and northern, district, regional, provincial, and rehabilitation hospitals), residential treatment centres, and special-care homes; and
b) describe the services to be provided by each category and sub-category of facility.
Subsection 13(1) The Facility Designation Regulations provides that the Minister shall publish in Part I of the Saskatchewan Gazette a list of all facilities or parts of facilities that have been designated, their titles, the categories or subcategories to which they have been designated, and their effective dates of designation.
