About the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority
The Winnipeg Health Region fulfills its purpose of Caring for Health by working to provide services that promote independence, wellness, treatment and care, and doing so with respect for the patients, residents, clients and communities it serves.
We are an organization of committed professionals who support each other in the delivery of health services, and we work to protect the health and promote the well being of the people who benefit from these services.
The Winnipeg Health Region serves residents of the City of Winnipeg as well as the Rural Municipalities of East and West St. Paul, with a total population of just over 700,000 people. The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority also provides health care support to nearly half a million Manitobans who live beyond these boundaries as well as residents of Northwestern Ontario and Nunavut who require the services and expertise available within the Winnipeg Health Region.
