Who is the WRHA?

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) co-ordinates and delivers health services and promotes well-being within the Winnipeg and Churchill geographical areas. The WRHA is home to Manitoba’s two tertiary hospitals: Health Sciences Centre Winnipeg (HSC), the largest teaching hospital and provincial trauma centre, and St. Boniface General Hospital (SBGH), a Catholic teaching hospital housing a spectrum of services, including the Cardiac Sciences Program.

The WRHA’s role is defined largely under the Regional Health Authorities Act. In carrying out its responsibilities in the administration and co-ordination of health-care services, it directly manages or contracts with others to provide a wide range of health-care services. The WRHA collaborates with community, government and other health partners to protect and enhance the health and well-being of our community. It also relies on a dedicated team of health-care professionals and support staff to achieve its mission.

The WRHA is governed by a community board of directors appointed by the Minister of Health. Its integrated leadership model includes the Executive Council, the Senior Operations Leadership Council (SOLC) and the Clinical Program Council (CPC).

The WRHA maintains an accredited status, meaning it has succeeded in meeting the fundamental requirements of Accreditation Canada’s Qmentum accreditation program.

Our Region

The WRHA serves residents of the city of Winnipeg, as well as the northern community of Churchill and the rural municipalities of East and West St. Paul, representing a total population of more than 700,000. The WRHA also provides health-care support and specialty referral services to nearly half a million Manitobans who live beyond these boundaries, as well as residents of northwestern Ontario and Nunavut, who often require the services and expertise available within the WRHA.

Our People and Facilities

Among the largest employers in Manitoba, the WRHA employs more than 28,000 people. With an annual operating budget of nearly $2.6 billion, the WRHA is the largest health authority in the province, and operates or funds over 200 health service facilities and programs.
