The plan is to have all patients in Saskatchewan receiving surgery within 3 months by 2014.
That's part of the Saskatchewan Surgical Initiative.
In order to meet that objective the Parkland Health Region has set a target number for surgeries.
Officials are hoping to go from a base of almost 52 hundred surgeries now to almost 61 hundred in the next 3 to 4 years.
In order to do that, the Region will be focusing on the surgical stream, from the time a patient walks into their family physician to discharge and after surgery care planning.
