Healthcare in Manitoba
Manitoba plays a strong national role in advancing health care practices. Practice opportunities range from small rural and northern communities to busy tertiary and trauma centres in Brandon and Winnipeg.
Health care in Manitoba is in a constant state of evolution, adapting to meet the ever changing needs of the health industry and the public it serves. World class research centres and laboratories situated here create far reaching benefits for modern medicine. State of the art equipment addresses the challenges of diagnostics and treatment. Proactive health centres and programs encourage healthy lifestyles and promote wellbeing for Manitobans at all stages of life from pre-conception through to seniors. Hospitals and health clinics provide the latest innovations in care and treatment in urban and rural settings, ensuring the best health care available is available throughout the province.
Manitoba's health care system is a broad network of services and programs. Overseeing this system is Manitoba Health, a department of the provincial government. For the most part, the actual services are delivered through your local regional health authority - one of five regional agencies set up by the province to meet the local needs of Manitobans.
