Northern Health is a large organization with many complex services and operations. We regularly receive questions and requests for information about a variety of health care-related topics, and we know that local, regional and Indigenous community leaders, local governments and partner organizations may have or be receiving these questions as well.
We are pleased to share with you a new resource, “Understanding Northern Health”, the current edition of which can be found online at www.northernhealth.ca/about-us complete with links to additional information, resources and tools from a variety of provincial and regional agencies and organizations.
Within the pages of the Understanding Northern Health booklet, we hope you will find useful information on Northern Health services, programs and processes that can help support you, your constituents and community members with accessing resources, understanding the Northern and provincial health care system, and answering general questions.
We are committed to keeping this booklet updated annually, and to continuing to share NH service and program related information on an ongoing basis. The Northern Health website remains the best resource for up-to-date and detailed information on local health services and facilities.
We hope you find this resource helpful, including contact information for a number of NH programs and services that can be found throughout.
