Public Town Hall

WRHA Q4 Public Town Hall

We invite you to join us at our upcoming virtual public town hall on Monday, April 8 2024, from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. This is an opportunity to connect with the WRHA senior executive team as they update on the strategic priorities found in the 2023-28 Strategic Plan along with initiatives underway to make progress these areas.

Register Now

New this year, the Winnipeg health region is giving the public opportunities to hear from the senior executive team and find out about initiatives underway that were identified in the 2023-28 Strategic planning process 

You can expect to hear progress reports on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that measure health care delivery. Each quarter, the updates will come from key strategic pillars of the strategic plan – Our Team, Our Care, Our System and For All – giving you more transparency to decisions that are made.

Public Pulse Surveys Pilot 

These town halls are a great opportunity for the WRHA to take in feedback on how we're doing when it comes to communicating and engaging with you. These surveys give you a platform for your voices to be heard and to influence the decisions we make to enhance service delivery in the region.  

Each quarter, a Public Pulse Survey will be posted along with the registration link. The survey is approximately 10 questions and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. We're looking for your feedback on how the organization is living up to its values and how you're feeling about communication and engagement overall.

We understand that your perspectives and feedback are invaluable in our journey toward improvement.
