We are a fully accredited 60-bed hospital and a 20-bed extended care facility. Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre (SLMHC) acknowledges we are built on the sacred land and traditional territory of the Lac Seul Ojibwe Nation, where we provide health services to all residents of Sioux Lookout and the surrounding area, including Hudson, Pickle Lake, Savant Lake, and the First Nation communities in our region.
MenoYaWin, in the Anishinaabe language means health, wellness, well-being. It refers to holistic healing and wellness, the whole self being in a state of complete wellness. Our care recognizes the relationship of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of the person. We embrace a holistic approach to healthcare. Patients and families have the option of integrating traditional and modern medicines and practices. We recognize and respect the cultural and linguistic significance of the people whose health care is entrusted to us.
Here at SLMHC, we provide a broad range of basic and specialized services along the continuum of primary health care. These include diabetes care, stroke prevention, mental health counselling and addiction services, and acute and outpatient programs.
Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre is committed to Excellence Every Time.
