Nova Scotia: "New Health Model Will Improve Service"

The process to streamline the health care system is underway. CEO of Pictou County Health, Patrick Lee has been appointed to lead the efforts as Nova Scotia moves to consolidate its 10 health authorities into two. Lee has spent 33 years in the health care system. He says he believes in the idea to reduce the health authorities.

The province is hoping to complete the process by next April. The new system would mean one health authority for the province and another for the IWK Health Centre in Halifax.
