The board of Alberta Health Services says six of the organization's top executives are no longer in their positions.

Last week, Premier Danielle Smith announced sweeping changes to dismantle the provincewide health-care provider, reducing it to one of four new service delivery organizations reporting directly to Health Minister Adriana LaGrange.

She appointed Lyle Oberg, who's a doctor and former Progressive Conservative cabinet minister, to run the AHS board.

He says in a statement that the transition over the next 18 months requires new ideas, voices and leadership.

Oberg says the board has made changes to its senior leadership positions.

Those changes include Mauro Chies, who has been the president and CEO since the UCP government replaced Dr. Verna Yiu in April 2022.
