MEDIA ADVISORY- Management realignment at Central Health

February 12, 2020

Central Health will realign management responsibilities across the organization on May 4, 2020.


The new structure will provide efficient care and services in a more integrated approach, while increasing management support to the front-line employees and reducing travel.

Central Health is becoming flatter and leaner in terms of our leadership structure. The Regional Health Authority is combining some director positions to provide better integrated care, while creating additional manager and coordinator positions to provide more support to employees on the front line and provide better decision support for the organization.


It will result in 2.5 net new positions for the organization with no impact on Central Health’s budget. The changes will be effective May 4, 2020.


Central Health remains committed to providing the best quality care and services to the people of Central Newfoundland. In order to do this, the Regional Health Authority needs to ensure employees are provided with a healthy and well-functioning workplace by investing in managers who can fully support its employees.
