As leader of Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug, I had opposed the amalgamation of the two hospitals in Sioux Lookout on the conviction that First Nations people should have their own hospital.
While lying in a hospital bed in the SLMHC during the summer of 2013, I was deeply humbled by the way many professional staff tended to my health care and safety. I knew Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre had become a reality because of the dream and hard work of great people working together and I have immense pride and honor to all of them. I will remember all staff in my prayers as they continue to provide the highest quality of service to all people.
