CEO of NRHA joins Chamber of Commerce meeting to speak about health care concerns in the North

The Thompson Chamber of Commerce meeting on Wednesday was joined by guest, Raj Sewda, CEO for the  Northern Regional Health Authority.

Sewda took over the position on April 1st and said he is travelling to the communities in the region to see and hear for himself what the needs and wants are regarding health care.

During the meeting, Sewda heard from attendees about the difficulties in having to travel down to Winnipeg for specialist appointments, the revolving door of doctors that make it tough to maintain consistent care, and facilities that need to be upgraded.

He spoke about the redevelopment plan for the Thompson General Hospital which is still in the works and the Clinical Preventive Services Plan.  

This plan will see 115-million dollars dedicated to the Northern Health Region, with the aim to deliver better health outcomes, shorter wait times and improved national rankings.

Sewda said the NRHA hopes to see some outcomes by 2024.
