Board of Directors

Board of Governance

Prairie Mountain Health operates under the direction of a Board of Directors.  This Board is appointed by, and accountable to the Minister of Health, Seniors and Active Living.  Responsibility of the Board includes the mandate, resources and performance of the health authority.  As such, members must represent the region as a whole, not any particular community or interests.

The Board’s role is to ensure the organization’s accountability by monitoring and evaluating its performance and by interacting and communicating with the public, stakeholders and partners.

Board members represent a broad cross-section of geographical areas, interests, experience and expertise. It is expected that members also share a strong sense of commitment to achieving the provincial vision of healthy Manitobans through an appropriate balance of prevention and care.

The Prairie Mountain Health Board of Directors must ensure that the organization complies with applicable legislation, regulations, provincial policies and Ministerial directives.
