We are pleased to present you with our new Strategic Plan 2021-26!
On May 4 and 7, 2021, Interlake-Eastern RHA’s board of directors were joined by over 90 stakeholders for strategic planning days. Among those present to guide development of our five-year-strategic plan were elected municipal officials, members of our local health involvement groups, First Nation health directors, educators, affiliated health organization representatives, staff and physicians. All participants heard from health system leaders through presentations that helped set the stage for the development of our regional plan within the context of provincial health system transformation, and clinical and preventive services planning with the development of Manitoba’s first plan for the delivery of these services.
Work on this Strategic Plan continues as we regularly review and monitor our progress towards achieving our vision – collectively.
We will be recognized as a trusted health-care partner, providing sustainable, accessible, integrated, evidence-based care to improve health status and outcomes in all of our communities and achieve health equity across the region.
Our vision defines health-care service delivery that people in Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority can expect to experience by 2026. Our planning partners identified the elements that were critical for inclusion in our vision. From 100 identified elements, 13 general themes evolved that were then prioritized by stakeholders for inclusion in our vision.
