Indigenous Wellness Program

The Indigenous Wellness Program at Providence Health Care supports self-identified Indigenous patients and families by providing access to traditional cultural practices and community supports including Elders, as well discharge planning and supporting culturally safe navigation for complaints. Our team also provides a critical role supporting service providers to understand principles of cultural safety and humility and apply their learnings to the care environment.
