Regina lawyer Robert Pletch has been appointed to the board of directors for the newly-created Saskatchewan Health Authority.
Provincial Health Minister Jim Reiter made the announcement last week, saying, “We have what I think is an outstanding board of directors…This distinguished group of five women and five men come from a diverse range of professional backgrounds, including governance, accounting, medicine, law, education and business. Their experience in these industries will play an integral role in guiding the transition to a single provincial health authority and achieving our goal of delivering high-quality health care for the entire province.” The 10 directors will serve a three-year term. The Saskatchewan Health Authority is set to officially launch in fall of 2017. Until then, the board will serve as advisers, guiding the setup of operations and the transition from the current 12 regional health authorities.
Robert has extensive experience with regard to governance advisory work for boards and committees of provincial and federal Crown corporations and major Saskatchewan-based public corporations.
MLT Aikins congratulates Rob on this well-deserved appointment.
