Currently, SVHC has completed a major renovation which now sees all of the health and wellness programs operating under one roof, and will include an infrastructure upgrade for the mechanical systems, windows and doors.

The health building has undergone extensive renovations to increase office space and maximize the general areas for the oyate to be comfortable in as they seek and wait for assistance regarding their medical and health issues. There is a wide range of services provided by SVDN Health Centre personnel from prenatal care to geriatric care through the Home and Community Care program and In Home Care. Privacy and confidentiality are respected as the oyate seeks help within the health centre for all health and wellness needs.

There is an ongoing support system in place through the wellness department for those who seek help with addictions or other problems such as family/domestic violence prevention and anger management.

History of Jordan’s Principle:

Jordan Anderson was a First Nations child from Norway House Cree Nation who was born with complex medical needs. He spent most of his life in the hospital because of jurisdictional  disputes between the federal and provincial governments over who would pay the costs for in-home care. Jordan Anderson passed away in 2005. He was 5 years old and had never spent a day in a family home. Jordan’s Principle was created was created to put the child first and put an end to jurisdictional financial disputes.

Location and Staff:

Jordan’s Principle a program under SVDN Health and is currently located in the SVDN Health Centre. We will be changing offices in the near future to help accommodate the needs of the children. Renovations are currently under way to the metal building located on the SVDN School grounds and we will be moving into the east side of that building upon completion of the renovations.
