Region's CEO profiled in Winnipeg Women

What is Arlene Wilgosh's vision for the Winnipeg Health Region?

The answer to that question can be found in the latest issue of Winnipeg Woman magazine.

In an interview with Andrea Danelak, Wilgosh talks about her early motivations for getting into health care - she was inspired by her friend's mother who was a nurse - as well as her reasons for accepting the appointment as President & CEO of the Region earlier this year.

"I wanted to get closer to patient care, to the day-to-day operational decisions," says Wilgosh, a former provincial deputy minister of health. "At the deputy level, you are that much further removed from seeing the impact of some of your decisions and connecting with the frontline providers," she says.

Along the way, Wilgosh also talks about the importance of integrating health services. "The (Winnipeg Health Region) is a really large, dynamic organization, but I think we are really working to put the patient first."
