Regional Strategic Plan

Before renovation takes place on a property or home, having a blueprint to guide the process is essential. Everyone clearly understands the direction, nuances and goals of a project.

A unified goal is pretty important when building or renovating and health care is no different. A common vision that’s widely shared is essential to make sure that our complex and dynamic health care system is working together to support the health of our community.

Much like the design and brainstorming phase of a renovation, in creating the Region's strategic plan, extensive consultation with both the general public and people who work in health care took place.

The Region’s Board of Directors was highly involved in the process of developing the strategic plan for 2016 – 2021, which was officially approved at its May 2015 meeting for release to Manitoba Health & Healthy living.

Manitoba Health, Healthy Living and Seniors requires regional health authorities in Manitoba to prepare a five-year strategic plan. These plans are based on each health region’s community health assessment, the unique characteristics of the health authority, the region or community it serves and the broader priorities of Manitoba Health.
