Palliser HAC wants to hear from residents about healthcare

March 1, 2018

MEDICINE HAT – Local and area residents are invited to attend a public meeting of the Palliser Health Advisory Council (HAC) on March 14.

This is an opportunity for members of the public to meet council members, provide feedback on health services, and to share views about local healthcare delivery and ideas for solutions. Feedback will be gathered and shared with Alberta Health Services (AHS).

The meeting runs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Medicine Hat Public Library, 414 1 St. S.E.

Health Advisory Councils play an important role in supporting the strategic direction of AHS by engaging members of their communities throughout Alberta in a respectful, transparent and accountable manner. Public participation is essential to improving the quality and accountability of health services. Working in partnership with AHS is an important way to ensure that services are more responsive to the needs of those who use them.

Alberta Health Services is the provincial health authority responsible for planning and delivering health supports and services for more than four million adults and children living in Alberta. Its mission is to provide a patient-focused, quality health system that is accessible and sustainable for all Albertans.
