Cypress Health Region Achieves Performance Targets in 2013/14 Fiscal Year

Over the 2013-14 fiscal year, CEOs and Senior Executives from health regions across the province and the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency have been part of a ‘Executive Pay for Performance Plan’ (EPPP) model.  CEOs and Senior Executive staff play a critical role in our health system and are being asked to lead transformational change throughout the health system.  The EPPP measures and appropriately compensates for senior level responsibility to successfully achieve established objectives.

As part of government-wide fiscal restraint measures, the Executive Pay-For-Performance Plan has been suspended for the 2014-15 and 2015-16 fiscal years. Health region CEOs and Vice-Presidents will receive their base rate of pay (100 per cent of their salary) for 2014-15 and 2015-16.
