Abstract

Abstract During Saskatchewan's healthcare reform of the 1990s, the number of acute hospital beds in Saskatoon District Health was cut in half. The emergency room and outpatient facilities were not able to accommodate an increasing number of patients needing urgent assessments and medical procedures. In this article, we describe the development, implementation and utilization of a day medicine program. This description may be useful to others planning healthcare delivery to medical patients, especially in a setting of resource constraint.
