Cypress Health Leading in Wait Time Reduction
The Cypress Health Region is standing out as the Ministry of Health updated their progress on reducing surgical wait times in Saskatchewan.
As of January 31st, 99.8% of surgeries in the health region were completed within six months, and no patients are waiting longer than six months for their procedures.
Provincially, 90% of surgeries are being completed within six months, with nearly 4200 patients waiting longer than that, mostly in the Saskatoon and Regina-Qu’ Appelle Health Regions.
The government set a target this year of offering surgies to patients within six months, with a goal of having no one wait any longer than three months for surgery by April 2014.
