The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) Board of Directors announced the following changes to the organization's senior management structure today.

Effective today, June 28, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Réal Cloutier will assume the role of president and chief executive officer (CEO) on an interim basis until a permanent CEO is selected following a national search.
