The Manitoba government has shuffled the boards of the province’s five regional health authorities.
“Regional health authority boards are responsible for the resources and performance of the health-care system, and I know these knowledgeable and skilled Manitobans will work hard to ensure the future of health care in this province,” said Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Kelvin Goertzen.
The province says the appointments will guide the provision of health-care services across Manitoba.
The new board chairs are:
- Edward Bergen, president and chief executive officer of Sunova Credit Union, Interlake-Eastern Regional Health Authority;
- Cal Huntley, senior contracts administrator for Hudbay Minerals Inc., Northern Regional Health Authority;
- Catheryn Pedersen, former office manager for Manitoba Habitat Heritage Corporation (retired), Prairie Mountain Health;
- Abram Bergen, Kleefeld Developments Ltd. (property development) and former director of development with Canadian Mennonite University, Southern Health – Santé Sud; and
- Karen Dunlop, interim executive director of the Association of Registered Nurses of Manitoba and a consultant for Karen M. Dunlop and Associates, Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.
The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority board can have up to 15 board members, while rural and northern regional health authorities can have up to 12 board members.
