KDHWF and KMAA’s Letter to Residents Regarding Health Care

Through COVID and other recent regional Health items, concerns have been expressed to representatives of Kindersley Health and Wellness Foundation (KDHWF), and, representatives of Kindersley Medical Arts Authority (KMAA) who are building owners ONLY, about service, service levels, other matters, and Physician concerns.

To be clear, neither group has any authority, capacity, ability or mandate to “provide health care services in West Central Saskatchewan”, this is the sole responsibility of Saskatchewan Department of Health, Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA), and Government. Concerns about these matters should be discussed and brought to their attention for response and action.

The KMAA/Building Owners, are a group of Regional Municipalities including Town of Kindersley, that came together to build a new clinic, in proximity to the Hospital, and provide a place for physicians, recruited, retained, and accountable to SHA, to practice and provide service to West Central Residents.

The KMAA/Building Owners has no direct influence or ability to determine how many Doctors are here, their methods of practice, or services offered at the clinic and hospital. SHA, Sask Health, and Government are the ONLY ones who determine this.

The Foundations purpose is to support our regions health services via funding for equipment (Hospital, Manor, EMT’s, Nurses, others), training, and, “assist” or “support” physicians in becoming established, once here, as best they can when new physicians arrive in Kindersley. All assistance and activities are in accordance with Foundation’s policies, and fiscal ability to do so. The Foundation has a website, it details our contributions, what we have done so far, and other information regarding the foundation.

Both the KMAA/Building Owners Group and the Foundation are represented by unpaid volunteers, representing RM’s, Town of Kindersley, and public at large.

We felt it best, given circumstances, to clarify what KMAA/Building Owner Group does and can do, and what the Foundation does and can do. Doctors, services available at Hospital and Manor, and other health related services or matters in the West Central Region are NOT in our control.

We appreciate and are grateful for support we receive from everyone in the West Central Region of Saskatchewan, without it, we would be unable to fulfill or do what we can to make things better, here.
