Mayor Garth Harris

Welcome to the Town of Preeceville. We are a community of just over 1000 people in a Province of just over 1 million. The same serene atmosphere and general warmth that makes newcomers want to stay and past residents want to return to Saskatchewan is more than true here in Preeceville. Our flag is 51 this year and with Canada turning 150 years old in 2017 we have started planning how to mark our nation’s birthday. Celebrating how proud we are as Canadians is very important to whom we are as a community. Preeceville will remain a small but progressive community with a strong volunteer base, generous friendly people and a strong business and service core. Our strength as a community is how we provide for our seniors and how we teach our youth. This, balanced with quality of life for the rest of our population, is what Preeceville and area is all about. We are proud to be a community in Saskatchewan.

Healthy Preeceville

Mission Statement

Short: “Provide a Healthy Safe Community”

Long: “Identify and encourage Primary Health Care Model initiatives for the Town of Preeceville through facilitation and coordination of people, research and ideas”

"I am committed to having our citizens understand the Health Care System before they have to access it. Our strength as a community is how we provide for our seniors and how we teach our youth balanced with quality of life for the rest of our population. My commitment is to use all of our resources to the maximum in this ever changing world. I am looking for pilot projects around all the great things we have in this community. World class Hospital, Telehealth, Dr.’s RN’s and paramedical personal. Add that to the broader teams of health care professionals and I am confident we will meet any challenges before us, ensuring that quality of life we all want. I am not looking for the four Doctor minimum (24-7) model but one that every small town or remote northern area could have. Everything in place, just not manned until needed. I think we could attain this and become the benchmark for all rural and remote Saskatchewan” Mayor Harris

New Doctor:

Preeceville has our new doctor. He passed his 12 week clinical field assessment in Melfort under the (SIPPA) program. The Saskatchewan International Physician Practice Assessment. Under this new program, doctors arrive to take care of patients with their studies and testing behind them. This moves us along in our work to further community engagement into evaluating all our needs and strengths to help identify and support the development of a sustainable health care solutions for the Town of Preeceville and area. I believe it is a very positive model and, with both doctors and the communities help, we can achieve a reliable and sustainable health care model.
The collaborative emergency center model that has been piloted in a few areas of the Province really do have some great ideas for potential opportunities and positive thinking around using all our strengths to improve health care delivery. Being one of the smallest communities the thought might be “they can’t do it”. When I look around all the great things we do have in this community, world class hospital, Telehealth, STARS, doctor’s, locums, nurse practitioners, nurses, other health care providers and paramedical personal, we can do it. Add that to the broader teams of health care professionals and I am confident we will meet any challenges before us, ensuring that “quality of life” we all want.
