On behalf of the DSM Board and the organization, we want to provide clarification and reassurance that Diagnostic Services Manitoba continues to be Manitoba’s provincial diagnostic services provider and that you can reach us through the same channels you have in the past.
DSM will continue as the corporate, legal entity it has grown to be; in other words, DSM will continue “as usual” through the next nine months of transition to the new Provincial Health Organization – Shared Health Services Manitoba that was announced on June 27, 2017.
On April 1, 2018 DSM will become an integrated and integral part of PHO-SHSM. We expect that there will be no interruption to our ability to enter into agreements, contracts, and most importantly:
without interruption to high quality, efficient, and effective
diagnostic services for Manitobans.
We are excited to become part of the broader provincial health organization and are proud that our organization will in many ways act as the foundation for Shared Health Services Manitoba. The new organization’s mission of improving patient care and providing coordinated clinical and business support to the province’s regional health authorities is very much in line with DSM’s own raison d’etre.
We look forward to continuing to work with all our stakeholders throughout this transition period and within the new provincial health organization post April 1, 2018.
In the complex world of health care, change can cause uncertainty: for our patients, public, health care providers and our business partners. Should you have any questions please don’t hesitate to connect with us through your normal contacts or at:
