The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) has been ordered by Health Minister Kelvin Goertzen to cut spending by $83 million and reduce its management ranks by 15%.
In a memo to staff today WRHA President and CEO Milton Sussman confirmed the reduction requirements from the tories.
“We are examining potential options to mitigate the impact of this action on our staff and to ensure we have the administrative structure that supports quality health care services delivery for the future. To date, no specific positions have been identified as part of this mandated reduction.”
The Manitoba Centre for Health Policy said the targets imposed on the WRHA will make it nearly impossible to not cut frontline staff.
