PRESS RELEASE: CHI RECOGNIZED FOR EXCEPTIONAL LEADERSHIP IN CANADA’S HEALTHCARE SECTOR.

Toronto, ON, February 14, 2014:  The George and Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) has been awarded an IPAC/Deloitte Public Sector Leadership Award for exceptional leadership in Canada’s healthcare sector. CHI was awarded the silver medal in a category including Saskatchewan's Ministry of Health (gold) and the Central Community Care Access Centre in Toronto, (bronze).

According to award organizers, winning projects are nominated for their strategic thinking, innovation and visionary leadership. CHI certainly meets these criteria. Established in 2008, the centre is a novel solution to bridging academic, research, clinical, decision and policy maker’s realms in order to translate leading-edge approaches to care and meet the challenge of delivering high quality, cost-effective healthcare.

CHI is a partnership between the University of Manitoba and the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. It fosters important collaborations by bringing together leaders and practitioners from all disciplines in academia and practice to ensure that the latest research and evidence are translated into improved patient outcomes, enhanced patient experiences and improved access to care for Manitobans. In the years since it was established CHI has spearheaded important transformations in Manitoba’s healthcare sector, including key health system process improvements and crucial research that has transformed practice in Manitoba and across Canada.  

The Institute of Public Administration of Canada (IPAC) was founded in 1947. It is a membership based organization that creates knowledge networks and leads Public Administration research in Canada. In Collaboration with Deloitte, one of Canada’s leading professional services firms, they established the IPAC/Deloitte Public Sector Leadership Awards Programs. The award recognizes organizations that have “demonstrated outstanding leadership by taking bold steps to improve Canada, through advancements in public policy and management.”
