The former Heartland Health Region of the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) provides health care services to over 44,000 residents in West Central Saskatchewan.
Within its boundaries, there are 57 towns and villages, 44 rural municipalities, and 20 Hutterite Colonies. The former Heartland Health Region is characterized by rural communities located across an expansive geographical area. Acute care services in Heartland, which include acute care inpatients, diagnostics (lab, x-ray and ultrasound), outpatient and emergency department services, are provided in six community hospitals (Unity, Kerrobert, Biggar, Rosetown, Outlook and Davidson) and one district hospital (Kindersley).
The former region and its affiliate, St. Joseph’s Health Centre (Macklin) provide Long Term Care to 480 beds located in 14 communities. Placement into their Long Term Care facilities is prioritized based on assessed need. The facilities also offer additional temporary care beds that provide respite, palliative and convalescent care.
