Six members are returning to the Saskatoon Regional Health Authority, including Chair Mike Stensrud.
I'm honoured to be able to continue as chair of the SRHA," says Mike Stensrud.

As a board, we are excited to support the Region in its continuing journey to improve and enhance the healthcare experience for all our patients, clients, residents and their families. We know our new board members will also serve the province well in supporting the Region's leaders in creating a patient-first system."
