About SLMHC

We are a fully accredited 60-bed hospital and a 20-bed extended care facility. We provide health services to all residents within 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.
