SKHC Calendar 2022

WHO WE SERVE Shkagamik-Kwe Health Centre (SKHC) is an Aboriginal Health Access Centre (AHAC) dedicated to providing equal access to quality health care for all Aboriginal, Métis and Inuit people in the City of Greater Sudbury, and individuals and families from our partner First Nations: Wahnapitae, Henvey Inlet and Magnetawan. We are a culturally based holistic health centre dedicated to balanced and healthy lifestyles. Programs and services support traditional Aboriginal values encompassing the connectedness of emotional, spiritual, physical and mental well-being. In meeting our mandate and honouring the ancestors and the seven generations we have an intake process to access services of SKHC. SERVICE DELIVERY PHILOSOPHY SKHC has a responsibility to promote and maintain health and provide therapeutic services, health promotion, disease prevention, support, community development and treatment programs. We offer an interprofessional team approach to the care of the community members because we believe that health care is best when planned with professionals from many disciplines. We believe that the maintenance of client confidentiality is of utmost importance. We recognize that a client is a worthwhile person and has the right to be treated with dignity while maintaining his/her identity. We believe that the client should be assured equal access to integrated services that incorporate the unique values, beliefs and traditions as we strive to maintain a balance of understanding by practicing Traditional healing ways and adopting good Western healing practices. SKHC respects the value and contribution of all employees, and we strive to uphold the highest professional and ethical standards. We recognize that health services must be provided as economically as possible while striving to obtain sufficient resources to meet our service objectives. We believe in and value the teachings of the Seven Sacred Grandfathers: WISDOM, LOVE, RESPECT, BRAVERY, HONESTY, HUMILITY and TRUTH. We strive to integrate these principles in our work and in our lives.
