The organization must be sustainable for it to continue to improve access, quality and safety, the health of the population and workplace health. Therefore, Eastern Health will leverage inventive ideas, technologies and processes to increase efficiencies and reduce waste. 

These efforts will help to mitigate the growth of expenditures in the province’s challenging fiscal environment..
Eastern Health’s sustainability priority aligns with two of the Provincial Government’s Strategic Directions: A More Efficient Public Sector and A Bright Future.
By March 31, 2023, Eastern Health will have improved the sustainability of the organization.
