The Kelsey Trail Health Region will amalgamate with the rest of the province’s health regions within the next couple of months. The new Saskatchewan Health Authority is on track to launch operations by December 4, 2017. It’s anticipated that on that date, The Provincial Health Authority Act will be proclaimed and legally transition the 12 Regional Health Authorities (RHAs) to the Saskatchewan Health Authority, including the transfer of employees and operations.
An organizational structure has been established for the senior leadership team of the Saskatchewan Health Authority. The recruitment process for these senior positions will soon be underway, with job opportunities to be posted over the next several weeks.
In addition, a logo for the Saskatchewan Health Authority has been developed. The green and yellow stylized outline of Saskatchewan represents the forests in the north and the grain fields of the south and emphasizes the authority’s commitment to providing quality healthcare for the whole province, without regional boundaries.
