Province seeks independent facilities to provide more surgeries in Alberta - 2020-01-31
"We're eager to hear from independent providers who want to help us improve access. They already perform thousands of surgeries for Albertans, providing safe care that's convenient for patients and reduces costs," said Health Minister Tyler Shandro.
"We're going to make the best use of hospitals and independent providers to give every patient the right care in the right setting, and give Albertans the best access to surgery in Canada."
In a statement, NDP health critic David Shepherd called the move, "another step on the wrong path by (Premier) Jason Kenney," and said it could lead to "American-style healthcare."
