Wholistic Health of Keewatin Yatthé Health Region Residents

Welcome. The Keewatin Yatthé Regional Health Authority (KYRHA) is located in northwest Saskatchewan -- encompassing an area of approximately 1/4 of the province.

The Keewatin Yatthé RHA administers a comprehensive and much needed health care delivery system for numerous northern villages and towns.

KYRHA takes pride in accepting the immense challenge of caring for people scattered throughout vast stretches of rivers and lake-laced forestland.


FOREST FIRE SMOKE AND YOUR HEALTH

Some communities in northern Saskatchewan may be impacted by smoke from forest fires burning in a number of areas. Forest fire smoke can have an effect on your health, especially if you already have lung problems.

QUALITY AND SAFETY MILESTONE MET

One word proclaims a milestone. Another word acknowledges challenges met. While many more describe how that milestone was achieved and those challenges met. All point to a commitment to health care quality and safety.

Learn more about why being "Acredited" is important to KYRHA and quality, safe health care. News release


2014-15 BUDGET SUPPORTS CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

Focusing on continuous improvement while staying within budget, the Keewatin Yatthé Regional Heath Authority will spend $29 million on the delivery of quality, patient- and family-first healthcare programs and services to residents of northwest Saskatchewan during 2014-15. News release


QUALITY OF CARE AND PATIENT SAFETY

Do you have a question or a concern about the health care services you received from the Keewatin Yatthé Regional Health Authority? You may be able to resolve these issues by talking to the caregiver who provided the service or to an appropriate supervisor. Should your question remain unanswered or your concern go unresolved, you may want to contact a quality of care coordinator (QCC).  For more information on quality care and the role of patient and family in achieving such care, see Keewatin Yatthé News, April 14, 2014

EXECUTIVE PAY-FOR-PERFORMANCE

Chief executive officers of Saskatchewan’s regional health authorities and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency lead the transformational change demanded in quality health care delivery. The executive pay-for-performance plan (EPPP) provides a financial incentive for designated executives to successfully achieve established objectives, and compensates them according to measurements of their performance on agreed-upon targets.

The EPPP stipulates that regional health authority and Saskatchewan Cancer Agency CEOs only receive their full base salary (100 per cent) if they meet approximately ten different strategic performance targets. If performance targets are not met, executives can lose up to 10 per cent of their base salaries. If performance targets are exceeded, executives can earn up to a maximum of 10 per cent in additional pay. An executive’s final rate of annual pay will be somewhere between 90 and 110 per cent of base salary, determined by his or her specific combination of targets missed, met, and exceeded.
