Better Care, Sooner

Update - April 17, 2018:

  • Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) Preliminary 2017/18 Year-end Wait Times show an overall 15 per cent improvement in wait times since the region began implementing consolidation strategies in October 2017.
  • Over the past year there has been an improvement in WRHA emergency department wait times. We see these improvements through the first phase of consolidation despite an increased number of very sick patients in recent months.
  • Median wait times improved to 1.62 hours in 2017/2018 from 1.95 hours in 2016/17.


April 2018 - Ambulance fees have been reduced again!
Manitobans going through a potentially life-threatening situation should not have to worry about whether they can afford an ambulance before calling for one!

Our PC government is committed to ensuring that Manitoba’s health care system is better, stronger, and more affordable.

Our PC government has budgeted $452 million more than the last NDP budget - more is being spent on health care today than ever before!

Experts have told us that the health care system in Manitoba is not sustainable without significant change.

We are reforming health care to ensure better care sooner for you and your family. By concentrating hospital resources, investing in emergency services, reducing ambulance fees and hiring more paramedics, you will:

  • Receive faster care through shorter ER wait times
  • Get the right care at the right time at the right place
  • Spend less of your money should you need an ambulance

Manitobans deserve better health care - sign if you agree:
