Welcome to our multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses and allied health professionals. Together, we provide a full spectrum family medicine service, including low-risk obstetrics (shared care with our Registered Midwives) and emergency care. We are regularly joined by visiting specialists who provide our communities with access to expertise closer to home.
Xaayda Gwaay Ngaaysdll Naay (Haida Gwaii Hospital) serves a population of about 2500 residing in the communities of Daajing Giids, HlGaagilda (Skidegate), K’il Kun (Sandspit) and Tll.aal (Tlell).
Our facility is situated on the ancestral territory of the Haida Nation, on beautiful Xaayda Gwaay (Haida Gwaii).
It is administered by the Northern Health Authority.
In preparation for working with our healthcare team, we strongly encourage all to VIEW THIS VIDEO about the Haida and Tsimshian Nations’ culture and history, and how these impact their health care needs.
This video was developed by the North Coast Aboriginal Health Improvement Committee with financial support from Northern Health.
Recreation – The islands offer great fishing, sea kayaking, surfing (especially at North Beach, close to Masset, in late fall and winter), mountain biking, and hiking. Hiking Sleeping Beauty, beachcombing on North Beach or the west coast beaches of Rennell Sound and swimming at Yakoun Lake are some recommended activities.
Gwaii Haanas National Park and Haida Heritage Site can be reached by tour boat, kayak or plane with a few days off.
Tll.aal (Tlell) is a small community of artisans 40km from Daajing Giids and the Pesuta wooden shipwreck is a 5 km hike up East Beach from there.
The Haida Heritage Centre at Kay Llnagaay in HlGaagilda (Skidegate) is a rich resource and an excellent introduction to Haida history and culture.
