Transitioning to a Single Provincial Health Authority

Transitioning to a Single Provincial Health Authority

On January 4, 2017, the Government of Saskatchewan accepted all of the recommendations of the Advisory Panel on Health System Structure. The Advisory Panel report recommended system-wide transformation to better coordinate health care services across the province, and improve access to high quality, timely services for Saskatchewan people.

One of the most significant components of the transformational agenda was the transition of the 12 existing Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) into a single provincial health authority.

The move to a single provincial health authority is being driven by the commitment to improve frontline patient care for Saskatchewan people. One provincial health authority that is focused on better coordination of health services across the province will ensure patients receive high quality, timely health care, regardless of where they live in Saskatchewan.

On December 4, 2017, the new Saskatchewan Health Authority officially launched, transferring the employees and operations of the 12 former Regional Health Authorities to the new organization.

Day one of operations of the Saskatchewan Health Authority is just the beginning. The work to unify the health system under a single organization and coordinate system-wide transformation to improve patient care will be a multi-year journey in collaboration with patients, health care providers and partners across the health system.

For more information on the new organization, please visit the Saskatchewan Health Authority.
