Where you can direct your funds
Help us help the Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre! Your donation assists in our efforts to raise funds for program, equipment and education needs, as well as building funds for the Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre (SLMHC). You can direct your donation to any of the following funds, or allow us to put it to the area of greatest need.
Diagnostic Imaging (DI) Fund
No longer do we have to travel to distant centres for many of our diagnostic imaging services. Care, closer to home, surrounded by friends and family, is now a reality for patients at SLMHC thanks to your continued support and donations to the Diagnostic Imaging Fund. Past contributions have helped us raise more than $1.79 million for the purchase of the CT Scanner that became operational in November 2011. We are currently raising funds for the purchase of an additional ultrasound machine estimated at $300,000 to allow SLMHC to enhance its cardiac imaging.
Women’s Health Fund
The health care needs of our mothers, daughters, sisters and aunts, in our many remote and isolated communities are now being met with services offered right here at home. With your generous support, we have raised more than $400,000 to assist with providing year-round mammography services at SLMHC, and we continue to raise funds in support of programs, services and equipment needs to enhance healthcare for women in our region. Help provide education and prevention, reduce wait times and travel burdens for patients, and ultimately save lives in the north with a gift to the Women’s Health Fund.
Care and treatment at SLMHC surrounded by loved ones and friends can make all the difference in recovery. Your donation helps so many who are on their journey back to a healthy fulfilling life.
Palliative Care Fund
Help to enhance end of life care with a contribution to the Palliative Care Fund. Your donation assists in our efforts to support families and to maximize quality of life for our patients.
Extended Care Fund

General Equipment Fund

Your support ensures that our state-of-the-art facility continues to provide world-class emergency and primary health care services to more than 30,000 people living in Sioux Lookout, the surrounding communities, and the northern First Nations we serve.
