Third-Party Delivery

Third-party delivery of surgical and diagnostic services (CT scans ) was introduced in 2010 as part of the Saskatchewan Surgical Initiative in order to reduce patient wait times. Third-party delivery has increased surgical capacity for select day surgeries, and opened up operating room time in hospitals for longer, more complex procedures. Some MRI exams are now provided in Regina through a third-party supplier.

Regina Surgical Centres Inc. is the current third-party surgical vendor contracted by Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region (RQHR); Saskatoon Surgical Centres Inc. (under the name Prairieview Surgical Centre) is contracted by Saskatoon Health Region.

Surgical procedures performed vary by site, but include cataracts, dental, knee and shoulder arthroscopies, knee ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) repair, select gynecological procedures, select ENT (ear nose throat) repairs, and select plastic surgeries.
