SLFNHA developed a Comprehensive Client Services Department (CSD) Proposal and was approved by NAN (Resolution 94/67) on November 30, 1994 for submission to Medical Services Branch for negotiation. The proposal was submitted in January 1995. Approval was received during the summer of 1995 and the implementation took effect that September.
The Client Services Department provides non-medical health care services for First Nation clients travelling to Sioux Lookout and other urban centres for medical appointments. The following services are currently provided:
- Ground Transportation
- Accommodations at the Hostel
- Client Advocacy & Support
In 2008, construction of a new 100-bed hostel facility commenced. The new 38,000 sq. ft. facility houses food services, a domestic kitchen, a family lounge area, recreation and social programs and continues to provide Client Advocacy and Support as well as transportation to the Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre and the airport.
In early 2019 SLFNHA aquired the former Days Inn hotel located on #3 Stugeron Road. The building’s use will act as an expansion to the Jeremiah McKay Kabayshewekamik. The new building will be referred to as Jeremiah McKay Kabayshewekamik II (JMK II).
