Health Departments & Services
"Strong people from birth to spirit life".
Sts’ailes Health is here to serve the people by delivering culturally appropriate and professional services under a holistic approach. We strive to be letse’mot by working together as a dynamic team within Health and in collaboration with other departments and outside agencies. We have much to be proud of as a progressive First Nation.
While continuing to provide effective Health services, we must keep abreast with the ever-changing world of science, technology, and health standards. Under the direction of Sts’ailes Chief and Council, and in accordance with the Comprehensive Community Plan, we must follow the vision of Sts’ailes. And with the support from First Nations Health Authority and other funding agencies, we must work within the funding capacity of our Flexible Health Transfer agreement.
In addition to keeping up with the times and following the direction of our Vision, it is imperative that Health does its utmost in the area of PREVENTION. This includes the delivery of services that impede the onslaught of medical and mental health issues, and promote WELLNESS, such as Recreation, Culture, Nutrition, and Healthy Living. In fact, Council has recently given further direction to focus on prevention, with special attention to Youth and Recreation. Stay tuned for further developments and an increase in programs and services that support prevention.
