Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre :: Strategic Plan :: Sioux Lookout, Ontario

Welcome to Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre (SLMHC). We are honoured that you have chosen to trust us to provide you with excellent and safe care in a culturally sensitive manner during your health care journey.

At SLMHC, our physicians, staff, management, and especially the Board of Directors want to ensure that you experience the best possible care from a service perspective. Our aim is to ensure “Excellence Every Time” when you are interacting with our team.

In alignment with our mission, vision, and values, we are pleased to present our 2019-2022 Strategic Plan.

Among the Anishinaabe people, the teachings of the Seven Grandfathers provide guidance on human conduct with others and these teachings have been shared widely throughout our organization. As we reflected upon the 2019-2022 Strategic Plan, it was evident that the Seven Grandfathers teachings of human conduct aligned with the behaviours necessary to achieve the goals we had set. Subsequently, within this Strategic Plan document, we have outlined the Seven Grandfathers teachings, our new Strategic Pillar Goals, and respectfully illustrated how they intersect.

The creation of the plan would not have been possible without the valuable input provided by our patients and their families, our communities and our partners. We are extremely appreciative to each of you for participating in this important process.

Determining where we are going as an organization also requires us to reflect on where we have been, such as looking at our successes and examining our failures and challenges. This method provides us with an avenue to improve our services and to continue to strive for excellence. With feedback and input from our communities, patients, clients, etc., SLMHC is able to look at new and innovative ways to improve health care for all people in our region.

As our teams begin to focus and create specific goals to achieve the objectives of this strategic plan, we encourage you to actively engage with us. By working together, we will be able to achieve health care services closer to home. We hope your experience with the care and services at SLMHC is exceptional.
