As of April 1, 2023, all regional health authorities and the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information are transitioning to a single provincial health authority. This website will continue to be updated during this time.

Patients, clients and residents can continue to access care in the same way they always have. There are no immediate changes to health-care programs, services, facilities or contact information as a result of this step in the transition.
