Lake Manitoba First Nation celebrates grand opening of new health center


LAKE MANITOBA FIRST NATION, TREATY 2 TERRITORY, MB, Feb. 22, 2023 /CNW/ - A celebration was held today in Lake Manitoba First Nation for the grand opening of their new health center. Elders, leadership and community members gathered with honoured guests to commemorate the building's official opening with prayers and ceremony, greetings from Chief and Council, and a tour of the new facility.

The new Lake Manitoba Health Center is a facility that will improve access to quality healthcare and support a range of services and programs that promote health and wellness in the community. Dedicated spaces have been created for physician services, mental health, pharmacy, dental care and foot care, as well as a culturally safe space for patients, including a smudging area.

Lake Manitoba First Nation worked in partnership with Indigenous Services Canada, Project Manager ODK ? Oodanooketoh Inc. and NDC Construction, local community labour, and neighbouring tradesmen to plan and construct the new facility. The new health center is expected to be open to community members by the end of February 2023.
