Naandwegamik Health Centre
"Place of Healing"
Vision Statement - To provide quality, holistic community based services that meet community, family and individual needs by addressing issues through a team effort that promotes and respects community, family and individual responsibility for health through both traditional and western methods.

In September 2000 the health centre and a garage was contructed. This facility is wheelchair accessable, it is equipped with two treatment rooms, offices, storage rooms and a counselling/ observation room and a conference room with a kitchen. Visiting medical personnel such as physicians and nurse practitioners come in to help community members with basic blood tests, diabetes checks or other non-life threatening illnesses whether it be physical or mental. For the off-reserve medical appointments and for those who do not have access to a vehicle the medical driver uses the van to take them to and from their appointments.
