J.A. Hildes Northern Medical Unit
The J.A. Hildes Northern Medical Unit officially began providing health care on 1 July 1970 in the town of Churchill, Manitoba and the then Keewatin Region of the North West Territories (now the Kivillaq Area of Nunavut). For 40 years has had as its central mission to be responsible for health care, medical and paramedical research, and education for the communities in the remote north. The unit is recognised nationally and internationally as one of the most successful models of service delivery to remote northern populations and provides health care via family physicians, nurses, medical specialists, social workers, and clinic support staff. Additionally, it provides service to three hospital based and 12 nursing stations in Manitoba and eight Nunavut Health Centres.
