Recent changes to the Nova Scotia Health Authority are a sign of maturity for the organization,
says the province`s health minister.
Last week, the Nova Scotia Health Authority removed three senior vice-presidents in a restructuring move interim CEO Janet Davidson says will improve local decision making and address concerns of the NSHA being too complex and bureaucratic.
Nova Scotia Health Minister and Antigonish MLA Randy Delorey said the change was determined to be an important move for the authority. The province established the NSHA on April 1, 2015, and Delorey said the NSHA determined it was an appropriate time to make structural changes allowing for devolution of decision making out to the four NSHA zones more effectively.
Delorey called the changes a part of the natural evolution of an organization the size of the NSHA.
